This Will Be Humboldt's Best Tuesday All Year

Officially, there are 52 unique Tuesday's on this year's calendar. Knowing full well that there are still 43 yet to come, your Lowdown is going to go ahead and declare this the best Tuesday of 2014. We feel strongly about this.

Why do all other days of Tue pale in comparison? For starters, it's Fat Tuesday, yo! There are few more colorful events on the annual Humboldt itinerary than Samba Na Chuva's Eighth Annual Fat Tuesday Party taking place once again up at Six Rivers Brewery. The locally based Samba troupe will take it to the dirt, provoking your senses with Brazilian-style percussion, enticing choreography and elaborate costumes. (Let Samba Na Chuva member and top HumCo Viner KJ Day further seduce you toward the top of the hill McKinleyville in the Vine below.)

Elsewhere Tuesday: 

You will not get to all of the awesomeness this Tuesday is offering. But do your best.
