The Glass Onion Gears Up for Mardi Gras

To celebrate Mardi Gras, The Glass Onion is offering a free slice of king cake to costumed diners tomorrow night.

Also in honor of the holiday, the West Ashley restaurant is serving po boys, gumbo, crawfish etoufee and sazeracs. Its standard Tuesday night fried chicken will be accompanied by red beans and rice. And co-owner Sarah O’Kelley promises there will be beads.

The Glass Onion is located at 1219 Savannah Hwy.

Attention, masqueraders! If you insist on dining in disguise today, Black Bean Co. would prefer you keep your costumes benign. “The sign started out as politely asking customers to not wear their masks into the store, mainly for safety issues,” says downtown store general manager Matt Lickiss. “I like to give some freedom to my cashiers about coming up with their own clever signs.”

Basically, don’t scare your servers, please.
