The Tuesday before Lent, Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, is a traditional day of celebration and festivities before the contemplation and abstinence of the Lenten season.
Cleveland may be a thousand miles from New Orleans and several thousand from Rio, but the city still knows how to throw a Mardi Gras party. Mardi Gras 2014 is March 4.

The Mardi Gras Lounge and Grill
You'd expect a restaurant named the Mardi Gras to have a killer party, and this one doesn't disappoint. In fact, every day is Mardi Gras at this friendly, downtown eatery. Tuesday, however, they're offering live jazz all evening and lots of tasty Nawlin's style specials in addition to their regular selections, like a yummy Jambalaya. Remember, Mardi Gras serves late into the evening, too.
