Main Street will be crowded and busy tonight with the familiar faces of the Huntington Beach locals and farmer market goers for Surf City’s Market and Street Fair. We have James Moss, Trevor Green and Tunes On Wheels for entertainment and the dedicated vendors will also be attending as always. However, another street half way across the country will be far more popular and packed this evening.
The infamous Bourbon Street deep in the city of New Orleans will be getting far more foot traffic than our little beach city street fair. Yes, today, for those of us on the West Coast who don’t know, marks the annual Fat Tuesday or more commonly known as the last day of Mardi Gras! Fat Tuesday is day to celebrate and commemorate Lent which is now only 47 days away for those of you thinking about what to give up. With Ash Wednesday being tomorrow, Fat Tuesday was established to give us all one last chance to give into our personal vices, urges, and desires. People tonight all across the world plan to celebrate by drinking beer, throwing beads, dancing in the streets, and indulging in fatty foods before they have to fast for Lent.
As far as HB is concerned, downtown Main won’t get as crazy as Bourbon St, but if you are looking for a reason to be “fat” tonight we may have a suggestion. For those of you who love sweetbreads, sugar and cookies stop by the Planet Cookies, Inc. booth for some sweet treats perfect for Fat Tuesday! Every cookie is hand baked from scratch and loyal customers will agree that you can taste the freshness in every bite.
Planet Cookies, Inc started as a small café in the city of Monrovia Old Town city, where they featured and fed the L.A. locals delicious and healthy paninis, sandwiches, and best of all, cookies. Now, Planet Cookie has expanded; they now offer catering and beautifully designed cakes available when you visit their website where you can find a downloadable order form if your looking to add some sugar to a party or event. More than likely, the best way to get your hands on one of the planet’s best cookies is to stop by Surf City Nights where you can find the booth half way down Main Street.
They have got a “sweet” hook up too, cookies are $2.75 each or $29.50 for a dozen, but if you stop by the booth you’ll find all items are 2 for $5.00! They also have a variety of flavors to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth, from classic Chocolate Chip, to White Chocolate, to Oatmeal Raisin, M&M and more!!
So come check out Surf City’s Street Fair tonight for Fat Tuesday to satisfy all your cravings before you have to give them up for Lent. Head to the Planet Cookie, Inc. booth and stuff your faces with the “Cookies that make the planet a little sweeter!”
