Stop Whatever You Are Doing.

At 2:45 P.M. on Fat Tuesday, 2009, Pableaux Johnson, New Orleans food writer and raconteur extraordinaire, sent Houstonians this message:

"Whatever you are doing, stop it right now and take the rest of the day off. It's Mardis Gras people! You have a whole lot of drinking to do if you hope to catch up!"
