To Do Tonight: Celebrate Fat Tuesday

This year’s Clarendon Mardi Gras parade, scheduled for today, was canceled due to complications caused by last week’s snow storms. But worry not, Fat Tuesday partying will still go on.

Ragtime Restaurant in Courthouse is the place to be tonight for the food, drinks and music of New Orleans. Ragtime is offering an expanded Cajun menu, including fried oysters, shrimp and crawfish. That’s in addition to the usual Tuesday raw bar special.

The food may be tempting, but it’s not Fat Tuesday without some festive drink specials. Two beers from Louisiana brewery Abita are on special tonight: Abita Turbo Dog is on tap for $3, and Abita Purple Haze bottles are $3.50. Ragtime is also offering $6.50 Hurricanes and Cyclones.

The food and drinks will be complimented by live music. Arlington’s Brother Shamus will play from 6 to 9. Local New Orleans-style jazz band Le Bon Temps Krewe takes the stage from 9-11.

A $3 cover will be charged after 9:00.
