Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler with W New York – Downtown this Mardi Gras

WHAT: Celebrating Mardi Gras in The Big Apple could send you all the way to The Big Easy. On March 4th, W New York – Downtown will be serving the Taylor Bird Sazerac(a signature drink from W French Quarter’s SoBou restaurant) with a complementary Billy’s Bakery King Cake cupcake. Staying true to a Mardi Gras tradition, one of the King Cake cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery will come with a baby hidden underneath the oh-so-tempting Mardi Gras themed frosting. One lucky guest who finds the baby will win a two night stay for two at W New Orleans. The hunt for the baby is on, but don’t forget to Laissez les bons temps rouler!

For those looking to experience Mardi Gras first hand, W Hotels of New Orleans are offering two exclusive packages, which include a five-night stay at W French Quarter, the chance of a lifetime to ride in the Krewe of Orpheus parade, entry into the Orpheuscapade Mardi Gras ball, two specialty cocktails “to go” daily from SoBou or Zoë, as well as a two night stay at W New York – Downtown.
