Fat Friday at Angel Orensanz
Art benefit, NYC to New Orleans
Friday, February 28, 2014 - 7:00am - 12:00pm
FAT FRIDAY lights up the New Orleans Mardi Gras tradition once a year in downtown Manhattan to celebrate an equal mix of charity and revelry—a righteous combination of live brassy Mardi Gras music, New Orleans food, dancing beaus and beauties, and a big fat dose of NOLA Love.
FAT FRIDAY began in 2006 by NOLA transplant Matthew Day and New Orleans enthusiast Wylie Stecklow in response to the devastation resulting from Hurricane Katrina. Inspired by the influential music, cuisine and unique culture that makes New Orleans, Stecklow and Day formed an impressive array of musicians, chefs, and artists to create a fundraiser and celebration of New Orleans.
The now annual FAT FRIDAY event is an opportunity for restaurateurs, musicians, artists, chefs and New Yorkers from all walks of life to honor and observe the spirit and legacy of New Orleans—through giving back by totally getting down.
