In New Orleans, Mardi Gras is a time of masquerading, merrymaking, parades, pageantry, and good food. During Carnevale, people stroll along the canal lined streets of Venice in ornate costumes and, in Rio, Carnaval is one big happy party. Here, you can celebrate Fat Tuesday, February 12, with spicy Cajun-inspired dishes like Applebee’s Bourbon Street Steak, Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp, Cajun Shrimp Pasta in a Cajun scampi sauce, and Sizzling N’Awlins Skillet with blackened chicken, shrimp and Andouille sausage served with jambalaya.
To add to the N’Awlins style celebration, Applebee’s is serving up Hurricanes, a mixture of Myer’s dark rum and Captain Morgan spiced rum mixed with sweet and sour, together with a combination of pineapple and orange juice.
Those who can't make it down to the Big Easy this Mardi Gras season, can still enjoy Cajun-style cooking at their neighborhood Applebee's in Paramus. To find a location near you, visit www.Applebees.com .
