Cajun Festival at Hudson Terrace

Party Big Easy–style at this rooftop bash. Chow down on grub from New Orleans–gumbo, jambalaya, po' boys ($3–$5)–while grooving to live jazz and other entertainment. Wash down the spicy eats with theme-appropriate libations (Abita beers, hurricanes). A $50 ticket buys you unlimited tipples (or pay $60 for five food samples and bar access).
