Long Islanders celebrate Mardi Gras at Rachel's Waterside Grill in Freeport just to have some fun and eat as much as they can before Lent begins.  They dress up and dance to the music just as they would in New Orleans as they try the delicious food offered at the 15-year veteran restaurant.  Patrons show off their bright makeup and masks, and tell us about the times they visited New Orleans and enjoyed the real Mardi Gras.  This is the one day of the year, besides Halloween of course, that people get to be someone else.  The Zone Band play the drums and guitar, and sing in the spirit of the Mardi Gras Indians.  Rachel's Waterside Grill is a great family restaurant, located right on the water next to a boardwalk and a golf course.
