Where to Get Your Fat Tuesday on in Boise

It's Fat Tuesday, and in addition to the sugary drinks and lecherous looks you can get year round at downtown bars, tonight there will be even more debauchery.

-Main Street Bistro, China Blue and Dirty Little Roddy's are offering the chance to win a $3,000 credit for breast augmentation so you can augment the number of beads you'll get next year. There's a $5 cover for all three bars, and it's $3 for all drinks and shots, all night long. But you have to be present at one of the bars to win the boobs.

-The Drink Bar and Waterfront Grill is also throwing a Fat Tuesday bash with a carnival mask contest, no cover and $4 Cruzan hurricanes.

-Or, if you’re ready to get extra-gluttonous, you can take Duh Short Bus for free beginning at 8 p.m. from The Drink to Fatter Tuesday at Fatty’s Bar with DJ Flave. It's $10 for 32-ounce hurricane buckets.

-If it’s food you’re after, visit The Piper Pub and Grill for jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish and red beans and rice. They’ll also be serving “huge ass beers” ($5 for 32-ounce PBRs), hurricanes and mint juleps. There's live music with Brandon Pritchett at 4:30 p.m. and Steady Rush at 6 p.m.

-Another food and beer option is Highlands Hollow Brewhouse, which is offering a dinner special of Brewhouse Piaya with scallops, shrimp, clams and sausage over yellow rice topped with creole sauce. The meal also comes with salad or gumbo for $12.95.
