2012 - Mardi Gras

This post is early. Fat Tuesday is Feb 21st.
However, I'm hoping people will use it as a place to report any Mardi Gras events at restaurants or businesses selling baked goods.
Here's a link on East Bay events from last year. I'll keep an eye on those as the time gets closer
A threaad looking for King's Bread in San Jose this year.
Here's a photo of the King cake that Dominique's Sweets had for sale on Saturday at the Santa Rosa Farmers Market. Didn't buy it, but it was $20 and HUGE. It sells at farmers markets and by special order, no retail store front.
Easy Creole in SF didn't know what it would be doing for Mardi Gras when I was there last month. But the owner said they'd do something and he had all the beads ready.

arizmendi selling king cake on the 21st. however, dont just pop in and assume they have some. did that last year in their emeryville location and left with nothing in hand because they were baking them at a later time in the day.
D'oh--- had I been paying attention to this thread ahead of time, I would have taken a picture! I just happened to have spotted it while buying some other stuff. They seemed smaller than the King cakes I've eaten in the past, and wasn't as festively decorated as the one Melanie Wong posted above.
