Mardi Gras Gris-Gris

If you are looking for ways to celebrate Fat Tuesday here in DC, Central is reportedly hosting a special party with live music. While last minute reservations are probably no doubt impossible to come by, there is usually ample space at the bar. Lower key celebrations not requiring reservations include Ragtime's annual celebration, with music, beads, and of course, Abita Beer.

We hosted our own (second) annual Mardi Gras party this weekend, complete with the to-die for (read: containing more butter than anyone person should ever eat) New Orleans BBQ Shrimp (above) and melt-in-your-mouth macaroons shipped in from the fantastic Uptown New Orleans bakery Sucre (below).

Happy Mardi Gras!
