Helloooo Mardi Gras! This year, you don't have to go all the way to New Orleans to celebrate. We've featured three local Fat Tuesday fests; if you know of more, drop a comment!

Mardi Gras Party @ Papa Mojo's - What better place to go than Durham's own cajun roadhouse. They'll have two party rooms, four bands, a mask contest, face painting, caricatures and an art gallery. They are also offering VIP admission, which includes a free drink, no lines to get in, VIP seating, and an after party with a midnight breakfast buffet. 6pm/$10 gen/$40 VIP. The band schedule will be:

Fat Freaking Tuesday @ Motorco - CROSSOVERDRIVE will be headlining with their funk, soul, rhythm and blues. Also featuring Joe Hall, Grass is Green, and Dirty Dishes in the Garage. Motorco will also be serving Red Beans & Rice, and have created a special "Motorcane" cocktail. 6pm/FREE.


Mardi Gras Dance & Costume Ball @ The Pinhook - This event combines Cajun dance lessons with music from a new local Cajun band. The party starts at 8pm with Cajun dance lessons taught by Jack and Sandra Wolf, then at 9pm the Shamu Garcon band takes the stage to play some high octane Cajun dance music! FREE.
