Lines formed in the wee hours of the morning at local bakeries for people wanting one last taste of their favorite Fat Tuesday indulgence.
Fat Tuesday overflows with traditions that began centuries ago in Europe.
Mardi Gras is a time of celebration and although New Orleans is the epicenter of the nation’s biggest parades and celebrations, the Metro Detroit area has a wide array of events and parties going on as well.
Royal Oak will come alive on this Fat Tuesday, as the city hosts it’s annual Pub Crawl.
With more than a dozen flavors of the tasty Polish delights, everyone has their own favorite Paczki!
The best paczki are the free ones in the office lunchroom, but if your co-workers aren’t coming through, visit New Deluxe, New Palace, Dutch Girl Donuts and a handful of other Detroit bakeries!
