      just did that in the end, paid more for express shipping than the products themselves (memorial day crawfish boil, urgent)

        Priorities, priorities. That crawfish boil is going to be great!

    2. Does it have to be liquid? I've seen the crab boil pack around...possibly the Pathmark uptown and Fairways uptown. I keep an eye out for when I finally decide to try to make a gumbo again.

        thanks. i did find some places that have the dry boil (gramercy fish on 2nd Ave, and Fishtails in Bklyn), but i really wanted both.

      2. Mara's Homemade (which does a pretty decent crawfish boil in season) on 6th St. in the East Village will sell you a bottle of the liquid stuff for $5 if you ask. I bought some there last week. Surprisingly, my fish market in Kingsbridge (231st and B'Way) sells the dry packs for $1.99 (along with dirt cheap shrimp). I prefer the dry seasonings, because they're all natural, while the liquid stuff isn't, but the liquid stuff has a much better kick.

          1. Aquabest on Grand Street in the Lower East Side/Chinatown has dry boil. I never checked to see if they have liquid.
