It’s time once again for the annual ritual of PG-13 debauchery as the Acadiana Center for the Arts hosts its Saints & Sinners Masquerade Bash Saturday night in the James D. Moncus Theater. Roddie Romero & The Hub City Allstars will provide the grooves as revelers in masquerade or creative cocktail attire nosh, dance and mingle in an AcA transformed into a devil’s playpen. There will be a costume contest, gelato bar and some cool things to bid on in a silent auction. And that’s about the only thing silent about this fundraiser for our cool, downtown arts venue.
Tickets to the Saints & Sinners Masquerade Bash are $45 per person or $80 per couple. The bash runs from 7-11 p.m. Call 233-7060 for ticket info.
