Fat Tuesdays $2 Seafood Happy Hour - Tuesdays

Tuesdays is the night to head down to Fat Tuesday's New Orleans themed bar in University Mall across from George Mason University. Every "fat" Tuesday they offer one of the best specials in Fairfax with their $2 Tuesday promotion. For just 2 bucks you can get a variety of craft beers, wine, vodka bombs and some delicious seafood. Here's everything you need to know about Fat Tuesday's $2 Tuesday.

$2 Tuesdays
3pm - 9pm

*There is a 1 time $2 Add On Charge To get the Specials*

$2 Craft Beers
$2 House Wine
$2 Vodka Bombs
$2 Domestic Drafts/Bottles

$2 Seafood Items

1/4 Pound Steamed Shrimp
1/2 Dozen Steamed Clams
Cup Of Soup of the Week

$7 Seafood Items
Gator Bites
1/2 Dozen Oysters (Raw, Fried, Char-Broiled)
Pretzel Crab Dip

Creole Clams (Limited Time)

As you can see there are a lot of $2 items. The special runs from 3pm-9pm on Tuesdays only and starts off with a $2 "wristband charge" which is just like a cover charge. They will not give you a wristband (at least not if you arrive early and have a waitress) and they will add it to your tab without even telling you. So if you order anything on the special menu it will cost you $2 extra (one time only). While thinking about what to order munch on some of the bar peanuts and don't be afraid to chuck the shells on the floor (they want you to).

The seafood is wonderful but the special here is all about beer. For the regular crowd you can get your bud light drafts for $2 but why do that when they also offer the "select premium micro draft" selections at the same price. And when I was there last, the "select" draft was any beer found on the menu! Wow!

I grabbed an Abita Andy Gator to stay in the Louisiana spirit, but they had tons of other options including favorites like Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, Bells Two Hearted and DC's own Atlas District Common.  And these aren't your classic plasitc cup draft, these are full 14oz drafts in a nice beer glass.

House wine and vodka bombs are also just $2.

The $2 seafood menu items always seem to come out great. The portions are quite small, but they are some really great bar snacks to compliment your beer.  They also have a few choices for $7 including the gator bites which are one of my favorites.

As you can see this is really the best deal in town (even better than Joe's Crab Shack $2 seafood Tuesdays). Also on Tuesdays in the same shopping center are Brion's Grill Burger night and cheap-er movie night at University Mall 2nd Run Theater.

Fat Tuesdays is a New Orleans themed dive bar located in the University Mall shopping center across from George Mason University. University Mall, 10673 Braddock Rd, Fairfax, VA 22032. (703) 385-5717.
