Fat Tuesday pancakes, King Cake at Slim's Diner today


If you wanted to get in the Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday mood, get yourself to Slim's Diner at Georgia and Upshur, they're serving pancakes and selling their house-made King Cake all day, traditional Mario Gras foods.

King Cake, if you're not familiar, is sweet cake baked with a plastic baby (representing Baby Jesus) in one of the pieces -- whoever gets the baby traditionally has to make the cake next year, but sometimes there are other traditions.

Here's more from the Atlantic about the pancake tradition.

Slim's is open 7am-10pm.
