UPDATED. Time to get out the costumes and beads tomorrow and celebrate Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent begins, at Slàinte Irish Pub, Kooper’s Tavern, and Woody’s Rum Bar in Fells with a blowout feast of Louisiana and Cajun specialties and drink specials.
Kick off the day with beignets, starting at 7 a.m., at Slàinte and continue with blackened catfish, red beans and rice, chicken jambalaya, oyster po’ boys, and gumbo at Slàinte and Woody’s.
Kooper’s will be serving étoufée, crawfish, blackened catfish wrap, fried shrimp po’ boys, and Cajun burgers.
The restaurants’ annual Mardi Gras North Masquerade Ball also benefits the Tyanna Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for breast-cancer treatment. The restaurants will donate 10 percent of its proceeds to the group.
In nearby Harbor East, RA Sushi will also be getting into the Mardi Gras spirit tomorrow with Big Easy food specials like the spicy chicken and shishito green necklace, a noodle dish, and the chili shrimp roll.
The restaurant is also celebrating its fourth anniversary in Baltimore during the event with prizes, live music, and drink specials. Sip on a Southern Julep or HurRAcane to toast the occasion.
