Fat Tuesday is the last day of Mardi Gras, Carnival, etc. It's the last day to party and really eat before Ash Wednesday and Lent begins tomorrow where you fast and reflect during the Lenten season until Easter.
Pancakes and (canadian) bacon sound good. I think that's another Fat Tuesday tradition.
I don't know about healthier. The salads (or other dishes to pass) are across the board so I'm pretty sure most of them are not healthy. And then they serve packis - jelly filled donuts which I do not like. I only take a little of this and a little of that, my plate's not too full and I don't make myself uncomfortable. Otherwise it's a long night of restlessness and nightmares.
