Let the hood times roll! Fat Tuesday events open thread

Whatchu doing tonight? To celebrate the day before Lent any excuse to drink, there’s bound to be a few events going on around town. We can’t keep track of them all, but we’ll add a few throughout the day as they come in, but here’s one to get you started: Mo’s in Fort Greene is having a big free party starting at 7pm featuring free Creole food, beads and masks, plus $2 PBRs, happy hour drink specials and $5 hurricanes. I’ll be celebrating because for Lent this year, I’m giving up Catholicism. Or are we over Mardis Gras in NY this year?
