If you can't make it to New Orleans for Fat Tuesday, make it to the official Mardi Gras home page on the Web.
Here you can read about what you're missing and brush up on the history of Mardi Gras, send away for some beads to throw at your friends, and order a traditional King cake.
If you prefer ice cream to cake, check out the Ben and Jerry's home page.
Generally, food sites are not much more than advertising, but here you'll find fun like the Flavor graveyard, where you can mourn the loss of Rum Raisin. There are games and contests, and information about how to take the ice cream factory tour the next time you visit Vermont.
