Fat Tuesday, It's Not Just About The Pancakes

Today is Tuesday, but it's not just any old Tuesday. It's Fat Tuesday. Why fat? As the day before Ash Wednesday and thus the beginning of Lent, it's called "Fat Tuesday" as a way to connote the final day of indulgence before the 40 days until Easter. 

Whether you want to eat flap jacks or just dig in to the sweeter side of life, here are our suggestions to make the most out of Fat Tuesday. 


Jenco Brothers Candy
224 W. McMillan St. 45219

It's like a taste of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory in Clifton.


The Eagle Food & Beer Hall
1342 Vine St. 45202

No better way to defy your waist belt than with some fried chicken and sweet mash


Zip's Cafe
1036 Delta Ave 45208

Burgers and fries are not for the faint of heart


French Crust Cafe
915 Vine St. 45202

Because even though it isn't all about the pancakes, there must be some pancakes involved


Sleepy Bee Cafe
3098 Madison Rd. 45209

Bees make honey. Honey is sweet. This is the place to go for a semi-healthy but awesome treat.
