Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday)

Posted by admin on Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Fat Tuesday is followed by Hungover Wednesday (that's today), in case you didn't know. But if you're like me and spent your night responsibly preparing for a  major test on this, the first day of the Lenten season (that's why we celebrate Mardi Gras!), check out the bead-tastic recap of the night of purple, green and gold.


Other celebrities present include Cindy Lauper, Harry Connick Jr., Mariska Hargitay and, of course, the perpetually desperate Bret Michaels.
