Looking for a Crawfish Boil on Sunday, 03/09
Anyone know of a crawfish boil happening on Sunday, March 9th, within an hour of NOLA? Or perhaps a place in town that serves them regularly when in season?
Big Al's and Franky and Johnny's are both sit down places. You can pick them up at Big fisherman and eat them somewhere else.
Let's get the lingo straight: a "crawfish boil" refers to an event, usually private, where crawfish are cooked & eaten...you have to get invited to a crawfish boil. On the other hand, loads of restaurants & takeout joints will sell you boiled crawfish (the foodstuff). Try Perino's Boiling Pot, Sal's Seafood, K-Jean on Carrollton, Big Al's on Annunciation....

My friend Shaggy hosts crawfish boils in bars and backyards all over town. Give him a call and see if he can help- (504)484-4440/Shaggy's Boil, Inc. He just shut down his seafood shack so he may have the time and inclination to hook you up!
