That time of year where we eat drink and have fun before lent. You don’t have to be Christian to celebrate this day.
It’s that time of year to let the good times roll.
Unhitch that belt buckle because it’s time to party for Fat Tuesday New Orleans style in Lake County. Sure you can’t experience Bourbon Street in the Big Easy (and with the way the weather has been all winter, we all wish we could), but you can get a healthy taste Mardi Gras: the Lake County version.
In this week’s edition of Tasty Tuesday: Celebrate Fat Tuesday in Lake County.
As they say in the Big Easy: “Laissez les bon temps rouler”… let the good times roll! The special KeyLime Cove Fat Tuesday Celebration holds many surprises around every corner of the resort.
