D.C. may bear no resemblance to New Orleans, but several restaurants are paying homage to Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday, February 24. You can read a round-up that I wrote for today's Express.
If you want a King Cake for your own celebration, Buzz can help. The multi-colored, doughnut-shaped cakes filled with raspberry and cream cheese cost $25 and are available by special order. Buzz is located at 901 Slaters Lane in Alexandria.
And I'm heading down to the real Mardi Gras today, so check back next week for pictures and recaps of my adventures!
