Phat Friday

You don’t have to travel to New Orleans to see drag queens, colorful costumes, and freely bared breasts. Just visit the Downtown Phoenix Mardi Gras Parade, kicking off at 7 p.m. at 1st Street between Jefferson and Madison streets. Afterwards, head over to CityScape for a free Mardi Gras festival featuring a beer garden and festive tunes from Bad Cactus Marching Band. If you still haven’t purged your sins by 9 p.m., join the pub crawl and get your drink on at five downtown bars, followed by a sober-up meal at Steve’s Greenhouse Grill.
