Tonight: Fat Tuesday celebrations in the city -- and beyond

It's Fat Tuesday -- which means the six weeks of abstinence heading into Easter start tomorrow.

Make the deprivation worth your while by partying hearty tonight:

Wynkoop Brewing Company, 1634 18th Street, is hosting its annual Fat Tuesday festivities -- which kick off at 4 p.m. at the sibling Wazee Supper Club, 1600 15th Street, with a pre-parade party. Then march to the Wynkoop (last year's parade is pictured above), for live music (featuring the Kent High School R&B Ensemble, directed by Stephen Holley, followed by eight-piece brass band the O-Tones), Big Easy Lager and Creole cuisine, as well as complimentary masks and beads. The Wynkoop party runs until 1 a.m.; for more info, call 303-297-2700 or visit www.wynkoop.com.

Down the street at Jax Fish House (1539 17th Street), you can celebrate at Beads, Beignets & Babies. The Denver location is offering $5 Hurricanes and Hand Grenades, live music and a four-course menu for just $33 (with an optional $12 wine pairing). And the Boulder Jax (928 Pearl Street) will be partying, too, with Hosea's Blood Orange Hurricanes for $6 and a three-course menu for $35 (with a $15 optional wine pairing).
