Fat Tuesday is early this year

This is a heads up that Fat Tuesday comes early this year. It is on February 5th, 2008. If you think that means nothing to you here in Central Indiana you couldn't be more wrong. It is cold and colorless in our part of the world right now so we need a reason to celebrate. The AYS Agency puts on a "Mardi Gras Mambo" parade in Noblesville and downtown Indianapolis on February 2nd, 2008. These are family friendly, and pet friendly, parades complete with beads and doubloons that are tossed from the floats. Sure it can be cold to watch but it is worth it to see the floats and hear the great music. Find parade routes and details at
When you think of New Orleans, one of the first things that comes to mind is food. We are very fortunate to have 2 great Cajun options in the area. Yat's never disappoints (particulary the chili cheese etouffee) and they have several locations. Zydeco's might be a farther drive for you but it is very much worth it. Located in a quaint old building in downtown Mooresville, you really feel like you have walked into the French Quarter when you enter their doors. The decor is perfect, the staff is always welcoming, the food is divine, and you can wash it down with Abita beer- the beer of New Orleans.
