Happy Fat Tuesday or if you prefer, happy Mardi Gras! If you are looking to live it up before Lent by consuming massive quantities of the fruit-filled fried dough known as paczkis here are a few places to find them.

I love donuts but not cream filled and honestly I'm more of a Krispy Kreme fan, but hey Happy Fat Tuesday!!
