Brenda%27s%20Fat%20Tuesday.jpgNew Orleans restaurant Brenda's (652 Polk Street) is usually closed on Tuesdays, but they're making an exception for Mardi Gras, when owner Brenda Buenviaje will open doors from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. And the Fat Tuesday bonus menu items are (drumroll, please!) an andouille sausage po-boy, chicken-sausage jambalaya (lunch only) and pork chops smothered with onion gravy (dinner only). Also consider knocking back Abita's new seasonal strawberry beer, Dixie Blackened Voodoo or other NOLA-born brews. [EaterWire]
