Monroe revelers gathered at the former Coca Cola building downtown on February 18th to celebrate Monroe Mardi Gras in style at the Downtown River Jam Mardi Gras Party.  The tunes of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas filled the air, as guests sampled a bevy of Louisiana craft brews courtesy of Choice Brands and awaited the 33rd annual Krewe of Janus Parade. Featured breweries were local favorites Flying Tiger (Monroe, LA), Abita Brewing Company (Abita Springs, LA) and Nola Brewing (New Orleans, LA). The sidewalk in front of the party was roped off for a prime bead catching location, as the colorful floats passed right in front of the soiree. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
