This is going to be a whole lot of fun tonight!

All of the Fat Tuesday celebrations are going to be going on, but I can't think of anywhere that will be any better than the bar that is literally created and themed around the Mardi Gras capital of the world: New Orleans.

Today is Fat Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras: The last day before Ash Wednesday in which, traditionally everyone gave sugar and sweets before the Lenten holiday began in the Catholic religion, So, there is going to be quite the Mardi Gras parties going on in Western New York. From Chesters in Cheektowaga, The Quarter downtown, and this new bar that looks like, not only the most authentic cajun place in Buffalo but the most fun, too. It is called NOLA and it opened just last week in time for Fat Tuesday celebrations.
