A few months ago, we posed the question on our facebook page and in our newsletter, “What’s your favorite East Dallas seafood place?”, to which about 90 percent of the respondents answered, “Fish City Grill”.

Not only does the place offer year-round good food—as one of our editors told you last summer—but they also know how to party. Take this, for instance. Their Mardi Gras Tent Party will run tomorrow through Fat Tuesday, 2.16, and feature live music beginning at 6:30 p.m., specials on crawfish, king crab, and other seafood and, of course, drinks—think Jell-o shots and Hurricanes (is it still cool to drink Hurricanes in a celebration so closely associated with New Orleans? Well, we won’t worry about that right now.)

Bottom line: music, food, drink and beads. It’s a Mardi Gras miracle. Be there.

Fish City Grill, 2323 Henderson.
