Looking for something different to do this weekend? Consider checking out the Shaka Zulu Mardi Gras Ball, which takes place Saturday, Feb. 2 at 4 p.m. This third annual event offers an authentic Mardi Gras experience featuring Cajun cuisine as well as traditional Louisiana fanfare.

The ball takes place at the West Bay Conference Center, 1290 Fillmore Street. General admission is $50 per person or $90 per couple and includes a buffet. For VIP tickets, which includes reserved seating, bottle service, personal waitstaff and gift bags, you’ll be paying $80 per person or $150 per couple.
