MARDI GRAS. Doonesbury's Honey is having a very special Mardi Gras. Do you also want to party hearty like Honey?
A friend of Blog About Town drew my attention to this Nolita fundraising event. Gothamist touts a fundraiser at the Roxy (and also links to this video shout-out). You can get to a Village Voice list of events via this Blog About Town post.
If you prefer Marguerite Duras to Mardi Gras, tickets are still available for this unusual John Waters event at Florence Gould Hall!
BONUS The name Big Apple can be traced back to the Big Easy, says independent scholar Barry Popik!
