Weibersfastnacht 2019 / Mardi Gras
Womens Carnival Night, Fasching is Mardis Gras in Germany, and the festivities really get going on the Thursday before fat Tuesday where the women are in charge. This dates back to the 1800s and Laundry, the women were at home doing all the laundry while the men were at Karnival having fun. One day they got tired of it and stormed the government offices and cut off all the ties of the men. Fast forward to modern day, women still cut off the mens ties but can offer a smooch in return.
We will be celebrating Fasting and Weibersfastnacht at the Villa Europa on Thursday, February 28th in the Bar/Deck area starting at 6:30. Come dressed in your best and brightest costumes and men wear your cheapest ties, as it may get cut off. Prizes for the best costumes, masks, skits, etc.
DJ Ben will be spinning the fasching music and open Mic. Tons of fun.. If your really feeling it, we would be honored if you would do a group skit as is done at many fasching parties. Join us and see how the Germans do it.
You are welcome to make a reservation, or you may just show up and join the festivities. 706-798-6211
