Time for those Mardi Gras festivities is running out. But, there's still one night left to celebrate.
Today is Fat Tuesday, and RA Sushi hosts a Mardi RA party starting early and staying open late - with specials from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. That's right--a sushi place. It's not like Mardi Gras has any culturally-specific meaning, right?
Ah--beginning at 7 p.m., RA serves Louisiana-inspired, Mardi Gras-themed food and drinks: Cajun wings (as opposed to the Buffalo variety); Creole crawfish and the more appropriate Voodoo Roll. RA will also serve limited-edition, festive specialty drinks, like Queen of the Parade (champagne with a splash of Pama, topped with floating pomegranate seeds) and the King Cake Martini...which sounds a little disturbing.
How do you say "laissez les bons temps rouler" in Japanese? Mardi Gras is getting weird.
