Mardi Ra at Ra Sushi All Valley locations Tuesday, February 12 from 7 p.m. to close

They certainly aren't serving traditional Southern fare, but that won't stop Ra Sushi from celebrating. In honor of Fat Tuesday they've got a variety of spicy flavors on special including a Spicy Chicken and Shishito Green Necklace, a noodle dish tossed with chicken, green and red bell peppers, onion, garlic, chili sesame sauce, and shishito peppers, garnished with Sriracha and black sesame seeds for $7. To wash it down, try a Southern Julep, made with Southern Comfort, Makers Mark, simple syrup and mint or a HurRAcane, featuring Southern Comfort, fresh fruit juices, lemon lime soda, simple syrup and grenadine - both for $8.
