"It's Carnival Time" in New Orleans and "everybody's having fun," in the words of the popular Mardi Gras song. And, whether you're in town for Mardi Gras, the Super Bowl, or just to have fun, you'll find lots of that partying spirit at Harrah's Casino this month.

One of the world's largest gaming houses, with 115,000 square feet under one roof, Harrah's is continuing its popular "First Fridays on Fulton Street" with live music, attractive art and food samples and wine on the Fulton Street Mall adjacent to Harrah's Hotel. In the evenings, the Masquerade nightclub, centrally located in the casino itself, features the best in pre-recorded music with live deejays and dancers. It has become THE place to be after hours and you'll meet people there who enjoy having fun as much as you do.

Here's what's on tap for Harrah's in February:

First Fridays on Fulton Street

Guests of all ages are invited to experience the food, music and fun on the Fulton Street entertainment corridor as the popular "First Fridays on Fulton Street" series continues into February.

On Friday February 1, the event will run from 5:00 8:00 p.m. and includes a featured glass of wine and small plates from some of New Orleans finest restaurants on Fulton Street. The restaurants represent a wide variety of cuisines and include Manning's, Gordon Biersch, Grand Isle, Besh Steak and Ruth's Chris Steak House.

Cash, credit cards and Reward Credits are accepted for the $20 cover, which includes live music by top New Orleans bands. For more information and to order tickets visit the Harrah's website at


Give yourself a break from gaming, come party and have a cool drink in Masquerade, Harrah's Casino's fabulous nightclub. Masquerade is in the center of the casino and it reigns as New Orleans' coolest after-hours gathering place. With its ice bar, hot music, giant video tower, ultra lounge and more, you are sure to experience the time of your life.

On Wednesday nights, starting at 10 p.m., #ElectroMasq rocks the house with dubstep and electronica music. Then, through Sunday nights, again starting at 10 p.m., hip hop and Top 40 are the features, brought to you by a hip, live, local deejay, and you can watch the fabulous Masquerade Dancers on weekend late nights. There is a cover charge on specific nights.

Or, if you are still into the gaming mood and want to enjoy it with some "atmosphere," Masquerade can accommodate you with its own signature slots and table games. You can play and drink and listen to great music all at the same time.

You must be 21 years of age to enter the casino.
