As they say in New Orleans, it’s time to “Laissez les bon temps rouler.” That’s French for “Let the Good Times Roll.”

If you want to get into the spirit of Mardi Gras, you don’t have to fly all the way to New Orleans. But you do have to go to the airport, Lancaster Airport, that is. That’s where you will find the great Mardi Gras celebration at Fiorentino’s at the airport.

From February 1st – 13th, Fiorentino’s will be decorated for the biggest party in the U.S. with masks, beads and lots of purple, green and gold. You’ll find all sorts of food and beverage specials inspired by the French Quarter. You’ll even get free beads with your Mardi Gras food and drink.

Start off with a Hurricane, the famous drink in a tall glass with two kinds of rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and Grenadine. Maybe a classic Pimm’s Cup is more your style, with Pimm’s No. 1 liqueur, lemon lime soda, lime and a cucumber garnish. The fruity Dixieland has citron vodka, banana liqueur, pineapple juice and cranberry juice, while the not-so-sweet Sazerac blends Bulleit rye, Herbsaint Liqueur D’Anis, bitters and lemon peel.

The chef is getting his blues on with New Orleans-inspired meals like Seafood Jambalaya with catfish, shrimp, andouille sausage, okra, peppers, celery, onions in a Creole clam sauce over brown rice. Steak Grillades are a Creole take on steak with potato cakes and jambalaya sauce. Zydeco Catfish serves up fried catfish with brown rice and jambalaya sauce.
