Live Crawfish

Leo May 7, 2002 04:32 AM

It's crawfish season. I found a vendor that will ship live crawfish for $2.50/lb, but requires a 100lb minimum to get this price. I'm looking for crawfish lovers in the Boston area to split the order with me. My planned shipping date is Friday, 5/17.

      I would love to but my temp apartment lacks the capability of processing and quantity of crawfish.

      That said, having just come up from Texas where live crawfish are much less a novelty, $2.50 a pound is better price than most places down there (of course you don't have to buy 100 lbs. at a shot). Then again, by proper crawfish feasting standards, 100 lbs. is enough for about 20 or so hungry folks.
