While Mardi Gras may specifically refer to Fat Tuesday (which this year occurs on March 5), this season of Carnival itself lasts weeks. As there’s very few celebrations as fun and exciting (and delicious) as Mardi Gras, that’s a very good thing! While New Orleans may be the center of much of the Mardi Gras revelry, there’s actually many tasty ways to celebrate around the country.
