Your Suit for Every Day
Mardi Gras is underway, and if you couldn’t afford a flight to New Orleans this year, we have you covered. Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday”, starts on Tuesday February 28, 2017. This New Orleans tradition began years ago as a celebration that takes place the day before Ash Wednesday. The tradition originated in Europe and was a way to celebrate the end of indulging in meat. With years of history, New Orleans has flourished with this carnival celebration and everyone wants to be a part of the culture and movement. Here in NYC, you too can be a part of the festivities without being on Bourbon Street. Check out these Mardi Gras events that you can get into while living in the five-boroughs.
