That’s what you say when you recognize a fellow masked reveler partying on Fat Tuesday, the last day to get your ya-yas out before Lent. Lent begins tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25. Don’t forget those beads.
So party on! While everybody who dives wholeheartedly into Mardi Gras in Boise (think people-watching freak-fest) usually ends up at the Balcony around midnight or so, here are some other places to go, things to do on this Fat Tuesday (watch out for those Hurricane cocktails, they taste like fruit juice, but wow, do they pack a punch!). And if you’re a last minute partygoer caught without a mask, try stopping by the Joker’s Wild or the Costume Shop on your lunch hour.
And make sure you call a cab if you’re drinking those Hurricanes!!
