Fat Tuesday is next week so it’s time to start making your Mardi Gras plans. Of course, we all wish we could be in New Orleans but for some of us that’s just not in the cards. Don’t fear. There’s tons of killer events around the country that are bringing New Orleans and Mardi Gras right to your door.
If you’re Catholic, this is your last night to eat rich, fatty foods before Lent, if you’re not, it’s an excuse to party on a Tuesday! And for those that don’t want to deal with the hangover on Wednesday, there’s a bunch of pre-Mardi Gras celebrations going on this weekend including a show tonight in New York featuring CJ Chenier, son of the inventor of Zydeco, Clifton Chenier, and one of the hottest accordion players out there.
Either way, get your tickets because these events are sure to fill up fast.
