Today is Fat Tuesday! Here's how you can celebrate.

The Blarney Stone Pub is hosting a party in honor of the holiday. They're going to have beads, masks and I'm sure some sort of Cajun cocktail menu all day tomorrow.

It is pretty odd to me that a bar so far north would celebrate a New Orleans tradition, but I think the Catholic angle has something to do with it. People know about Fat Tuesday because of Ash Wednesday and while there is a big Catholic community here in Bismarck, there's the familiarity.

Anyway, here's the official word from the Blarney Stone  on today's festivities via Facebook;
