Laissez les bons temps rouler!

It’s Mardi Gras time and Cincinnati bars and restaurants are ready to fit in some final moments of New Orleans-themed excess before the start of Lent. 

Fat Tuesday at HomeMakers
Over-the-Rhine’s HomeMakers Bar is celebrating the spirit of Mardi Gras with a menu of fat-washed cocktails “inspired by our favorite New Orleans classics,” says the bar in a release. This is the third year HomeMakers is hosting such an event, and this year it includes Creole bites by Halichea Edwards, a Jazz band and cocktails from Scott Augsburger. Try a French 75 with cream cheese-washed gin, vanilla, lemon and sparkling wine. Or a Zapp’s Voodoo-washed daiquiri. 6-11 p.m. March 1. Free admission. 39 E. 13th St., Over-the-Rhine, homemakersbar.com.

Braxton’s Big Easy Bash
The Covington taproom is celebrating Fat Tuesday with live music from New Orleans-style band The Hot Magnolias and Cajun food. Parlor on Seventh will be providing bites including blackened catfish, andouille sausage skewers and bourbon cherry bread pudding. 5-10 p.m. March 1. Free admission. 27 W. Seventh St., Covington, facebook.com.

Fat Tuesday Feast at Moerlein Lager House
Moerlein Lager House is hosting a Fat Tuesday feast and launching its Mug Club.

The March 1 launch event will also include a three-course dinner, featuring Moerlein’s 10th-anniversary Heller Bock beer.
