Just because you didn’t make it to the Big Easy this year doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Mardi Gras in the Big Apple. Plenty of New York City hot spots are hosting their own festivities with traditional food and music, drink specials, and plenty of beaded necklaces.  By Carly Petrone.

Bourbon St. Bar & Grill is always serving up some serious Cajun flair regardless of the time of the year. Come to the French Quarter on West 46th St. for Hurricanes, a Cajun buffet, and live music. If you’ve had a little too much fun (bar stays open until 4am) you can even stay at their French Quarters Hotel directly upstairs from the bar.
