Fat Tuesday is here, signaling the final day of Carnival revelry and indulgence before Lent starts tomorrow. Didn't make it down to NOLA this year to celebrate with beads and parades? (Unfortunately storms with rain during this year's festivities, but didn't seem to damped anyone's mood.) Don't worry: It's not too late to get your fill of Mardi Gras fun. Read on for some ideas about how to celebrate today:
- Whip up one of these Mari Gras-inspired meals tonight.
- Ooh and ahh over these spectacular floats and decorations.
- Listen to some New Orleans jazz music at .
- Check out the Parade Cam at to view the festivities in The Big Easy.
Now it's time to decide what you're giving up for Lent (if you observe). What have you decided to forgo this year?
