Oceanside CA— On Sunday, February 15th Oceanside Museum of Art will present its 21st Annual Mardi Gras Brunch at the beautiful El Camino Country Club in Oceanside, California.
The colorfully-themed brunch aims to raise funds in support of Oceanside Museum of Art’s (OMA) engaging exhibitions, dynamic educational programming and special events. In the traditional motif, as guests arrive they will be greeted with beads and champagne mimosas beginning at 10:00am. If attendees happen to arrive without costume, they will receive a designer mask as a complimentary gift.
To celebrate the event in its 21st year, Chef Dan will prepare a fabulous New Orleans-style buffet including a variety of flavorful Cajun dishes, from jambalaya to eggs benedict. To sweeten the taste buds, attendees will also enjoy Chef Dan’s famous bread pudding with whiskey sauce, blintzes and cheese cake with strawberry sauce. Indeed, this is a brunch designed for the food lover.
Live jazz entertainment will include music by the Phil Burns quartet and a demonstration by performers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Oceanside. A silent auction and opportunity drawing will be held in an effort to aid in OMA’s fundraising. Included in the array of prizes are a reproduction of a dress and jewelry worn by Ginger Rogers, a unique fabric hanging art piece from the Potala Palace in Tibet, special pieces by local artists, as well as hotel stays at Harrah’s Resort, Marriott Springhill Suites and Beach Terrace Inn, plus dining experiences at local pubs and restaurants.
