Happy Fat Tuesday, ya’ll!

It’s once again that sacred day when we come together as a people to celebrate. Parties will take place all around the world today, even right here in the United States. America’s greatest Mardi Gras party will be in New Orleans, but that doesn’t mean that NYC will be missing out on any fun. Here are some of the best ways to celebrate Mardi Gras in New York City:

Bourbon Street

This Hell’s Kitchen, New Orleans style bar will be partying all day and night. With two floors and balconies perfect for bead throwing, you’ll surly be in for a good time.

Delta Grill

For just $25, you get jazz music, a free hurricane and unlimited Cajun food. This party starts at 6 p.m., so don’t miss out!

Exchange Alley

If you’ve ever been to the French Quarter, you know of the little alleyway off to the side referred to as Exchange Place. This Lower East Side bar is an ode to Exchange Place, and makes one hell of a hurricane.

Ninth Ward

You don’t have to go to Louisiana to visit the Ninth Ward. Just head down to the Village for the bar with the same name and a Cajun theme. Oh, and don’t forget to try the Bayou Burger!
