Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”

Fat Tuesday is the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, also known as Lent. It is the day that many indulge, and prepare to give something up in honor of Lent for the next 40 days. Following Fat Tuesday is Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of the Lenten period leading up to Easter. This year Mardi Gras falls on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020.

Madi Gras is a good opportunity at another go around when it comes to that New Year’s resolution that you may have already broken. Think of a bad habit you’d like to get rid of, or something you would like to work on giving up that will help improve your well being.

But in the mean time before doing so, check out these Outer Banks Restaurants that will happily indulging in Fat Tuesday festivities!
