CLEVELAND — Fat Tuesday is still weeks away, but Parma’s beloved Rudy’s Strudel and Bakery teamed up with Ohio City’s Porco Lounge and Tiki to reveal a new packzi packed with flavor to celebrate Mardi Gras.

The New Orleans classic cocktail meets the Polish fried tradition.

The “Porco Hurricane Packzi” featured hand-whipped buttercream infused with a very top-secret recipe from Cleveland’s most authentic and beloved Porco Lounge and Tiki.

“Obviously anyone that knows me, a huge fan of Cleveland, Ohio,” said Lidia Trempe, of Rudy’s Strudel and Bakery. “Love nothing more than Paczki day, it’s my canvas. This was just a fun one. We always come out with a new one. I start planning for paczki day about three days after the last paczki day, so this has been about a year in the works.”

Customers can get their hands on the “Porco Hurricane Packzi” Thursday from 5 to 11 p.m. at Porco Lounge and Tiki, located at 2527 West 25th Street.

Tunes by The Current Year Records will be spinning all evening at the paczki debut.
