Fat Tuesday

Last night my girlfriend L and I went out for Fat Tuesday. We got jambalaya and king cake at Bayou Bakery (delicious!) and then ordered hurricanes at Liberty Tavern. We sat outside on Liberty Tavern's patio and watched the Mardi Gras parade go by. We even caught a few bead necklaces the performers threw into the crowd. It was pretty tame compared to New Orleans, I imagine, but I was still impressed by Arlington's enthusiasm for the holiday.

As a special treat I met Clarendon Nights and his cute girlfriend at Bayou Bakery! Check out his blog for pictures of the parade.


  1. Sounds like fun! Plus you look cute :)

  2. Wow, I had no idea that Clarendon had a parade!! sounds so fun! I'm dying to try Bayou Bakery.. maybe this weekend :)
