89th And Broke

I'm a young professional living in Astoria (formerly of Williamsburg, the UES and Murray Hill - I move a lot!). I'm always looking for something fun to do or the best place to grab a drink and dinner at an affordable price around the city. Have a suggestion? Email me at Laura AT 89thandbroke DOT com.

Get a Good Deal this Mardi Gras

Looking to head out this evening for Mardi Gras?  Before leaving the office and indulging in some drinks and appetizers, be sure to check out this guide to see which bars will have Mardi Gras parties and what drinks will be on special.

Caryn and I, on the other hand, will not be at the bar.  Instead, we plan on spending our Mardi Gras eating pancakes.

    Believe it or not Laura, today is not just Mardi Gras, it is also “Pancake Day.” Many families in Catholic areas traditionally make large batches of pancakes on this day, both to gorge before fasting of Lent and to use up lots of eggs, milk and flour that might spoil during the 40 days of Lent.

    did you copy that from your peel-a-day-away calendar?

  • Doug

    Yes, word for word.

    This calendar is one of the things that brings me to work every morning. I learn so much.
