Growing up with a father that was from the Birthplace of Mardi Gras (Mobile, Alabama), I was probably the only one out of my friends that knew all about the celebration but had never physically gone to one of the celebrations. And actually its still on my list of events to get to. Even though we were in Cleveland, my father made sure on Fat Tuesday our menu consisted of Mardi Gras food!
Now anyone who knows about Mardi Gras knows that its all about the parades and food! From the Jambalaya to the King Cake!!
