the Bombay Club is wanting you to enjoy its Ojen cocktail with a carnival twist! Similar to the New Orleans king cake baby, the feve is a porcelain trinket traditionally placed in a king cake and the person to find a feve is "king (or queen)" for the day and must provide the next king cake -- or in this case -- the Ojen cocktail! Collect them all! Available January 6-February 13 at the Bombay Club! Make reservation
