Feb. 16th at the Carlyle Club

Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day are playing footsie this year. The back to back mashup is putting us in a mischievous mood. Or maybe it’s just the anticipation of fine bourbon and chocolate. So what better excuse to come party with us? We’ve got it covered, from kissing your best boo on the dance floor to red hot and dizzying swing. Who says February’s not fun? Not us! We’re your one stop winter happy fix, as you know. Come. It’s Doctor’s orders. Doc Scantlin, that is! See you there!
