Time Out Market New York will be celebrating Mardi Gras all day long on Tuesday, March 1st. The DUMBO, Brooklyn destination is offering drink promotions, festive souvenirs, live entertainment, and more on the first and fifth floors.

Visitors will be able to raise a glass this Fat Tuesday with cheers to $8 hurricanes, and Big Easy cocktails served in classic branded Nola style bead-wrapped souvenir glasses ($14). It's made from rye whiskey, combier orange, peychaud’s bitters, orange & angostura mix, sparkling wine and absinthe. The Street Beat Brass Band will cap off the festivities with a performance of classic Nola jazz arranged in their own unique, urban, and dynamic style, starting at 5 p.m. on the 5th floor rooftop.

The Gumbo Bros., in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn is offering New Yorkers a taste of Mardi Gras. King cakes and classic gumbos – served with steamed rice and sliced green onion – are offered by the quart or gallon.  They include Nanny’s Seafood Gumbo (shrimp & crab), Cajun Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, and Gumbo Z'Herbes. Homemade King Cake (created in collaboration with Torres Desserts) costs $35.

In addition to gumbo, their popular po boys and fried baskets allow for additional sharing and snacking to ring in Fat Tuesday.
