Fat Tuesday aka Shrove Tuesday aka Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the world.
This year the party is coming to us!
Kick-starting the whirlwind months of February and March is Fat Tuesday (on a Friday) in Adelaide's own East End Vardon Avenue will be turned into a heaving New Orleans French Quarter street party with some help from some of Adelaide's finest establishments.
NOLA Adelaide and Mother Vine will be bringing those tasty Southern-styled morsels, while East End Cellars and Adelaide's own Cafe Du Mond - Exchange Speciality Coffee - will provide those thirst-quenching beverages and the best characuterie and cheese in town.
El Choto Paella Catering will showcase their utterly irresistible interpretation of jumbolaya, while Louisiana's own Abita Brewing Company will provide quality craft beverages to wash down the delectable offerings (and maybe even a hurricane bar or two to boot).
So if you were looking to get into the swing of Adelaide's mad months, this is surely the event to get you going. Fall in love with the colour, sound and utter madness that is Fat Tuesday all in your favourite East-End backyard.
Fat Tuesday (on a Friday) is presented by NOLA Adelaide and The Pop Up Co. in conjunction with Abita Brewing Company, Adelaide Fringe and Modern Party on February 12 2016 in Vardon Avenue. Entry is free.
