Join Bruce Blanck and Friends at Hey Nonny in downtown Arlington Heights for an evening of jazz, celebration and New Orleans inspired food before we begin our Lenten journey.

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of our Lenten journey. It is observed by many Christians who make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they need to ask God’s help in dealing with during Lent.

The expression “Shrove Tuesday” comes from the word shrive, meaning “absolve”. The observance can include practices like indulging in food that one might give up as their Lenten sacrifice for the upcoming forty days. In French, it is referred to as Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday”, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. So, join us for a Mardi Gras inspired evening of great jazz and New Orleans inspired food and then consider what you might want to shrive or “absolve” for Lent.

Reservations can be made for dinner at or by calling 224-202-0750. Bruce Blanck and Friends will be doing three 45-minute sets between 6:30 and 9:30 pm. Make your dinner reservation in that time frame. The music is on us, the dinner tab is on you!
