Happy Mardi Gras! Today is your excuse to down an entire box of glorified doughnuts without anyone being in any position to judge. It's also a day to dine on an insanely sugary cake loaded with food coloring and stuffed with an asphyxiation-sized plastic baby, all in the name of tradition and celebration.
This is a week to fill up with hurricanes, King Cake, crawfish boils, and paczki, and naturally, Mardi Gras events are on the schedule. After the jump, find a few food and drink events this week in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Mardi RA -- RA Sushi in Palm Beach Gardens is hosting a Mardi Gras party from 7 to 10 tonight with specials on food and drink inspired by NOLA. With live music.
