It’s called Fat Tuesday for a reason, folks. Head down to Brauahaus Schmitz today for pastry chef Jessica Nolen‘s “fastnachts.”
Fastnachts are a traditional Pennsylvania-Dutch potato donut, fried up and dusted with a combination of nutmeg and sugar. They’re the perfect pre-Lent indulgence–or if lent isn’t your thing, they’re just the perfect indulgence for a Tuesday. Also, there’s nothing like hot donuts to make you feel a little less cold and miserable during these arctic temperatures.
You can get a half dozen donuts for $8 or a dozen for $14.
Brauhaus Schmitz [f8b8z]
Tonight, Brauhaus Schmitz is hosting its annual Karneval party. The German version of Mardi Gras kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. Brauhaus Schmitz will be offering half-priced Kölsch for the women and raffling off a kegerator at 10 p.m. Each Kölsch gets you a ticket in the raffle and an order of a Kölsch Kranz gets you five tickets.
A costume contest will also be held with the winner walking away with a $50 Brauhaus gift card.
