Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras Approaches! Tomorrow is the day which marks the end of Carnival season and the commencement of Lent. In contrast to contemporary Mardi Gras( meaning Fat Tuesday in French) merriment, traditional celebrations included anticipatory feasting on rich dishes fasting to precede Lenten fasting and costumed parades. While many modern parties lack the original religious undertones, some catholic-majority cities still host time-honored religious events. Fat Tuesday is celebrated throughout the world including Northern and Southern Europe, South America, in addition to the United States.
D&E Casino Services was happy to contribute to 2 Mardi Gras celebrations this year. It was our absolute pleasure to visit:
Similar to customary celebrations, guests are encouraged to wear masks or their most elegant finery. Lively music and rich foods accompanied by an open dance floor where attendees could frolic unrecognized in their temporary disguises. Sometimes, like this past weekend, beads and other prizes are passed out to top-table-winners. We have serviced many of these events in the last 20 years and they are always a pleasure. Please call us at 562-925-1957 if you would like to discuss a Mardis Gras, Carnival, or Masquerade party.
Do enjoy your custards, cakes, doughnuts, and whatever else strikes your fancy this Fat Tuesday.
Cheers from your blogger!
