The Levee Bar & Grill will be serving up New Orleans style food all week, including seafood gumbo, beignets, creole surf and turf, and more!

301 Bistro,Bar,and Beer Garden always has cajun inspired food on their menu, from the gumbo to the Voodoo BBQ chicken there is something you will enjoy!

There maybe no beads in the street, or drunk people walking around aimlessly, but there is still fun to be had for Fat Tuesday in Tuscaloosa!
