MARCH ON: Lafayette Hotel Happenings
March is coming in like a lion with a roster of events and promotions happening right here at The Lafayette. Mark your calendars to experience our legendary hotel, like never before.
LAISSEZ LES BONS TEMP ROULER: Official After-Party for Blvd. Mardi Gras Crawl
Sunday, March 3rd from 3-5PM in the Conservatory
Mardi Gras mantra "Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler" is a Cajun French phrase meaning, "let the good times roll." That's exactly what we plan to do as the final destination for the 2nd annual Mardi Gras Crawl down El Cajon Boulevard on Sunday, March 3rd. The "good times" will roll on with drinks, dancing and gluttonous behavior at The Lafayette, with a special Best-Decorated "Mardi-Bra" contest for those in the celebratory spirit.
Crawlers, hotel guests and locals are all invited to join us for our Official After Party, from 3-5PM as Hundred Proof Bar takes over Hope 46 with specialty cocktails, and live entertainment by Lady Dottie and the Diamonds.
The traveling bar crawl, hosted by the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association, is planning to hit up local businesses down El Cajon Blvd, starting at 12 noon in the parking lot of neighboring local breweries: Eppig Brewing, Pariah Brewing Company and JuneShine with Folk Arts Rare Records spinning tunes. (3052 El Cajon Blvd). Guests will be able to purchase Boulevard Tickets at this location to enjoy $2, $4 and $6 specials along the crawl route. At 1:30 p.m., the Euphoria Brass Band will begin the parade down El Cajon Boulevard with Councilmember Chris Ward from District 3 serving as Grand Marshal. Stops along the way include Lips - San Diego, Collins & Coupe, Café Madeleine, Medina Kitchen, Barn Brewery, Twisted Taps, Tacos la Mezcla, and then finally, The Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows. We'll be ready for the Krewe, to keep the good times rolling.
RSVP for Free Tickets to get a piece of Kings Cake on arrival.
