Considering their cuisine, it seems fitting that J. Gumbo’s Clifton (the address is 286 Ludlow Avenue, near Skyline) would be celebrating Fat Tuesday today, February 12. The festivities include live music: the dixieland band Queen City Dixie Cats will be playing from noon to 1 pm, and the blues group Them Bones will perform from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. More than 30 prizes will be given away throughout the day. I saw the letters BYOB on the flyer, which means you don’t have to overlook that part of the celebration.
Their “taste of New Orleans” menu includes such medium zesty items as gumbo, etouffee, bumblebee stew, and white bean chili; hot & spicy meals include drunken chicken, voodoo chicken, and voodoo chili. The special today is bumblebee stew. For future reference, here’s their contact info and their hours:
