(Photo: Daniel Maurer)

Carnival has already been pretty wild this year, and it hasn’t even started in earnest. Down in New Orleans last week, the satirical Krewe du Vieux and Krewe Delusion processions brought plenty of raunchy anti-Trump floats and golden shower gags, as you can see from the photos and video sprinkled below. And not even those could top the Wild West-themed Trump float spotted at an Italian carnivale. But please, folks, let’s not let our jester-in-chief ruin what should be a glorious time of indulgence. Come Fat Tuesday, you should be fully focused on snagging free booze, southern grub, and freebies– that’s right, some local spots are prepared to throw more than just beads at you.

06_mikeforpres_lg

Suddenly, there’s a lot happening in the normally staid world of Papayas. Papaya King, the uptown institution that opened a St. Marks location a few years ago, is celebrating its 85th anniversary on March 3 and 4. For the occasion, they’re instituting “throwback prices” of 32 cents for tropical drinks and hot dogs (with sauerkraut, onions, or relish). There’ll be giveaways as well. Just one thing: The East Village location isn’t participating, so you’ll have to hit up the locations at 179 East 86th Street in Manhattan or 6 Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
