The Fat Bankers Social Aid & Pleasure Club, LLC was conceived in 2002 as a true New Orleans social aid and pleasure club—as an organization that would provide a great celebration to help and share our favorite city, the City that Care Forgot. They also conceived of the Fat Bankers Social Aid & Pleasure Club, LLC, as an organization that together, as a community, would create a float and sponsor events that no one single member could undertake on their own.
Moreover, in the classic history of New Orleans’ social aid and pleasure clubs, when not out to “sass the Man” and make Mardi Gras open to anyone who could endorse booze, beer, bourbon, broads, funk, and fun as a member of the Krewe of Tucks, the Fat Bankers Social Aid & Pleasure Club, LLC is busy providing CARE for the City that Care Forgot.
In 2015, the Fat Bankers’ Social Aid and Pleasure Club, LLC, formally endorsed Grace at the Green Light, a New Orleans non-profit charitable organization, by becoming one of its original thirteen sponsors. Along with our formal endorsement we encourage each Fat Banker to consider donating their time in support of the mission of Grace at the Green Light. For more information.

Other Organizations that the FBSAPC Supports
Gadsby’s Tavern Museum consists of two buildings, a ca. 1785 tavern and the 1792 City Hotel. The buildings are named for Englishman John Gadsby who operated them from 1796 to 1808. Mr. Gadsby’s establishment was a center of political, business, and social life in early Alexandria.
The tavern was the setting for dancing assemblies, theatrical and musical performances, and meetings of local organizations. George Washington enjoyed the hospitality provided by tavernkeepers and twice attended the annual Birthnight Ball held in his honor. Other prominent patrons included John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and the Marquis de Lafayette.
