The next Mystic Krewe of Barkus Parade is Sunday, February 23rd, 2025

Virtual Wine & Cheese Party

As you already know, Barkus is going virtual this year but that won't stop us from still having fun. Join your friends and neighbors for a guided wine and cheese tasting hosted by James Beard Award nominated “Wine Guy” Dan Davis. We will explore the finer points of pairing wines with cheese, drink a little too much wine, and eat a little too much cheese. Costumes, hats, and pets are always encouraged!

Here’s how it works:

Each ticket is a tasting for two to four people. You can increase the cheese portions to allow for four to six people.

Order by 11pm on Sunday 1/24/21 for this week’s fun. Act fast, though—this will sell out quickly.

We will deliver to anyone in Orleans Parish three bottles of wine along with cheeses and crackers from our friends at St. James Cheese. The delivery address cannot be changed after purchase.

No-contact deliveries will be made on Wednesday. There MUST be an adult present to accept the delivery. We will call you at the number you provide when we are on our way.

No-contact curbside pickup will be available at Commander’s Palace on Wednesday afternoon for anyone who lives outside of Orleans Parish. We also have pickup locations where you can purchase your bundle in Old Metairie, Mandeville, Baton Rouge and Lafayette. Retail location pickups are after 12:00pm noon on Wednesday, and your retail location will have everything packed up and ready to go.

Wednesday evening at 6:30pm we will all get together on Zoom to enjoy the wines and cheeses together. The tasting will be guided by Commander’s Wine Guy Dan Davis, but he WILL NOT be responsible for any questionable behavior after the third bottle is opened.*

We care deeply about your safety. Everything that will be delivered to your home will be touch-free. All personnel who prepare your wine and cheese orders will have protective equipment on at all times.
