The band will lead the host Krewe’s new King and Queen (Ronda and Mike Giangreco, pictured) on a Second Line parade throughout the shops and the gardens of CornerStone Sonoma. The authentic Cajun menu features Cochon du Lait (whole smoked pig), red beans & rice with Louisiana Cajun sausage, salad, French bread, as well as King Cakes brought in from New Orleans (a Mardi Gras must), and Louisiana bread pudding.

Tickets are $55 per person and include wine, food, music, parade participation and all around bon temps. Order at 934-4090 or Meadowcroft is located within CornerStone at 23574 Arnold Drive/Hwy 121.
