4th Annual Hot Chocolate Celebration

Shake off the winter chill and celebrate Mardi Gras at The Brown Hotel on Fat Tuesday, February 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. for the 4th Annual Hot Chocolate Celebration. The whole family can enjoy a variety of gourmet hot chocolate and hors d’oeuvres created by The Brown Hotel’s executive chef Laurent GĂ©roli and his culinary team in the lobby of the historic hotel. The cost of each cup of hot chocolate is $5 and includes a set of Mardi Gras beads. All of the proceeds will directly benefit The Home of the Innocents and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

This year’s selection of chocolate refreshments includes something exotic, a taste of white chocolate and something fruity. Spanish Chocolate Amore, featuring the sweet and spicy flavor of cumin, red pepper and honey cinnamon, will be available along with White Hot Chocolate, an almond-flavored drink with bourbon chocolate shaving. Make sure to try the Soy Milk Hot Chocolate too. Guests will be able to balance the sweet treats with savory delights, as complimentary tastes of the legendary Hot Brown will be available along with other hors d’oeuvres.

The Home of the Innocents was founded in 1880 to meet the needs of young underprivileged children. Over the years, the Home has grown and expanded to meet the changing needs of children in crisis. For more information, visit

CASA is a private, non-profit organization that trains and supports volunteer advocates who are appointed by the Jefferson County Family Courts to work on behalf of abused and neglected children. Every year in our community more than 2,000 innocent children appear before a family court judge. The Jefferson County CASA Project, founded in 1985, was the first one in Kentucky and is one of more than 900 CASA projects in 50 states nationwide.

The Brown Hotel, located at Fourth and Broadway, has been a Louisville tradition for more than 80 years. For reservations or more information, call 502-583-1234 or visit The Brown’s website at
