GET “FAT” AT THE VILLAGE SHOPS ON “FAT TUESDAY”!
In the blink of an eye, another year has already gone by, and March is a day away! Here at The Village Shops, March has us thinking of Mardi Gras and all things purple, green and gold! Mardi Gras is often associated with beads, masks, and food. However, Mardi Gras is actually French for “Fat Tuesday”, emphasizing the last night to eat rich, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lent season. This year Fat Tuesday falls on Tuesday, March 5th. Whether you practice Lent or not, March 5th will be a great day to join the Fat Tuesday celebration.
A tradition of over-indulging in food is definitely a notion that just about everybody is willing to get behind, especially when it involves endless menu options, waterfront views, and a trip to Naples’ only Ben & Jerry’s for dessert.
Here is your guide to Fat Tuesday feasting! Make your reservation now to get fat with a waterfront view at one of our six sparkling waterfront restaurants.
