Mardi Gras food - organic Hurricanes, donuts & king cakes

What Mardi Gras tips do you have to share?

One more year I've missed the Polish donuts at Delicatessi. I just remembered that they fly in paczi from Chicago on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday ... today ... sob.

The Portuguese bakeries on Alum Rock in San Jose will be making malasadas that day. In Hayward there is Hiser bakery making malasadas. In San Rafael, La Fayette is taking orders for king cakes for the last time. They close their doors in April.

Farmer Brown's has those hurricanes, jazz and a special menu.

Elite Cafe will have zydeco music and beads

Kingfish in San Mateo has a special menu and music. While they will have beignets & jambalaya, the wisdom of serving things like beef potstickers with sriracha aioli ... well, it makes me suspect someone over there started partying a little early. Here's the menu with in PDF format.

Town Hall will have a special party.

Anything else going on?
