Fat Tuesday. It’s the day of boundless sin before the annual period of ship-shape living.
Not here, though.
Oh sure, I’m a damn sinner. But I tend to spread mine out over the 52-week course of each year. Mardi Gras is cool because of the green, gold and purple — and the food. But I couldn’t care less about earning those beads. This Fat Tuesday at the Jimmy Rockford, we’ll probably be reviewing the required readings of John Steinbeck and making certain that our cars have the requisite bi-monthly gas treatment.
And appetizing with this wonderful New Orleans-style salad.
