Eat At Texas Tech

Come celebrate the BIGGEST party of the year at The Commons.

Mardi Gras is a medieval tradition celebrated on “Fat Tuesday,” the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. 

In some cities, like New Orleans, Mardi Gras has become a week-long celebration full of street parties, masked balls and lavish dinners. 

While we all can't travel to Louisiana and partake in the festivities, we can travel to The Commons to indulge in the traditional Cajun cuisine.
