Coming up this Fat Tuesday is Brews and Prose night at Market Garden Brewery on W 25th in Ohio City! It’s a book reading with a twist, and that twist is beer…because it makes everything better! One of the stars of HBO’s The Wire, Anthony Colicchio, will read from his memoir Dust to Dust, which focuses on his tour of duty in Iraq with the US Marine Corps reserves. Grab a brew and enjoy hearing from great authors who will stick around after the event to chat and sign books! The readings begin at 7pm! Another great Fat Tuesday event is going on at Around the Corner in Lakewood! They’ll be hosting one of the biggest Mardi Gras parties in town with live music from local cover band Tricky Dick at 9pm. Plus you can grub on some Cajun food from their special menu for the night, and obviously there will be beads—because what Mardi Gras party would be complete without those?!
