Mardi Gras party

Tuesday, February 28. After 5 p.m., 21 and over only. $12 afternoon/$15 after 5 p.m. Fat Fish Blue, 21 Prospect Ave., 216-875-6000.


If every day is Mardi Gras at Fat Fish Blue, imagine what the Cajun-themed blues bar's actual Mardi Gras celebration will be like. This year, the famous all-day blowout kicks off at 11:30 a.m. -- that's a.m. -- for a last-man-standing, party-till-you-drop, loud-and-spicy bash full of beads, booze, and boogie tunes. Cats on Holiday get to wailin' at 1:30 p.m., with a set of swamp pop and zydeco. Sax soul man Tony Koussa Jr. does his thing at 5, and the Swamp Boogie Band gets feet stomping at 8:30. Admission includes an all-you-can-eat buffet of hot vittles, including gumbo, black-bean dip, catfish, jambalaya, and more. Start taking your Prilosec now -- it's worth it.
