What: Gray's Public House opening with Mardi Gras Bash benefitting Urban Green.

Where: Gray's Public House, 510 Gray St.

The 411: Spirits ran high among the 100 young professionals turning out in support of Hermann Park Conservancy and turning out for an early look at the new gastropub that specializes in craft canned beer, cocktails and tasty bar bites. While swilling their choice among the 50 canned beer offerings, the YPs noshed on sliders, quesadillas and bags of french fries.

The Mardi Gras fun included traditional beads, masks and face painting all in the purple, green and gold Fat Tuesday colors. DJ Artafackt kept the joint jumping.

Who: Hosts Jonas Fertitta, Nicole Stresau and Luke Fertitta were welcomed by Gray's owners Ash Seth and Dennis Wen. The revelers included Tug Hanley, Hanna Rossy, Vinnie Broussard, Brian Patrick, Catherine Bradley, Pat Bradley, Carol Olson and Seth Laroche.
