Original Article: "9 Mardi Gras celebrations in Chicago"

You don’t have to travel down to New Orleans to get in the Mardi Gras spirit. Head to one of these nine spots to shake off the chill of Chicago’s winter with a taste of the Big Easy.

Oyster Bah

1962 N. Halsted St., 773-248-3000

Get messy with one pound of shrimp ($29.94) or lobster ($36.95) boiled with corn on the cob and sausage, which you can order at the Lincoln Park restaurant on Fat Tuesday. oysterbah.com

Shaw’s Crab House

21 E. Hubbard St., 312-527-2722

The Near North restaurant offers a New Orleans-themed menu including $26 blackened redfish with crawfish sauce, $20 fried oyster po’ boys served with coleslaw and fries, $9 hurricanes and $12 Sazeracs. The festivities conclude on Tuesday with a $32 crawfish boil, half-price oysters and live music from 5 to 10 p.m.
