Tonight at Jimmy's No. 43

Traditionally, European Catholics did not eat meat or animal products during the 46 day period before Easter known as Lent. Not wanting good food to go to waste a celebration was held on the Tuesday before Lent. Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday" is a time to indulge- to eat, drink and be merry! Tonight you can join us at Jimmy's No. 43 to partake in the tradition of eating and drinking- something you might have done anyway, but now you have a special reason to do so! As if that weren't enough, there will be Louisiana's own Abita Beer in the back room!

Tonight is also a benefit night for Food Systems Network NYC, an organization dedicated to universal access to nourishing, affordable food. 10% of tonight's proceeds will help support FSNYC.
