    Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday," is celebrated every year as the final day to indulge all vices before the Christian Lenten season. The beads, music, and food that have become synonymous with the holiday are not limited to New Orleans as Philadelphia gets into the action with fun offerings to end the Carnival celebrations.

     

    Mardi Gras is February 28th this year, but the festivities can be found days before and after. Here are some standout events for you to check out before the pre-Easter fast of the Lenten season sets in on Ash Wednesday.

    A Mardi-Green Celebration

     

    On a day usually meant to celebrate one's last chance to eat decadent foods before the Lenten season, Not Fat Tuesday seeks to reimagine the holiday a little bit as part of the Riverbend Environmental Education Center's Our Table, Our Planet Supper Series. Chef Alex Garfinkel returns to give his creative spin on Fat Tuesday, accompained by Guest Chef and local culinary/agriculture activist, Palmer Marinelli, and Nathan Kleinman of the Experimental Farm Network.
