NOMA—Mardi Gras is only days away now and Watershed has some plans for tomorrow night to kick things all off. For the latest in their Friday Suppers series, they're hosting a shrimp boil at 7 p.m. with a menu that'll start with grilled oysters around the firepit, red cabbage spring rolls and then the shrimp with Watershed's own Skipjack sauce. Reservations can be made for $75 per person by calling 202-534-1350. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Finally, here's another good bit of Mardi Gras intel: Central drops its Mardi Gras insert menu tomorrow featuring dishes like turtle soup, shrimp and crawfish etouffe, and gumbo. The menu will be available leading up to their Fat Tuesday party on the 21st featuring the sounds of the Dixieland jazz quartet Laissez Foure from 7–10 p.m. [EaterWire]
