Fat Tuesday Celebration with Crawfish--Central Austin?
Does anyone recommend a cajun place for crawfish and music on Fat Tuesday.?
My wife and I got married in Nola and it just so happens her b-day falls on Fat Tuesday this year.
Would love to eat some delicious mud puppies (preferrably spicy and cleaned) and kick back a few Abitas.
Preferrably Central Austin but we have no problem driving a little for a really good time.
Shoal Creek on Lamar is pretty much the cajun epicenter of Austin... I'm sure they're going to be having a big shindig. I'm not sure about a crawfish boil though, so you should probably call and ask. From someone who pretty much grew up with NOLA as a second home, I'll say that the food's really nothing that's gonna blow your mind, but the vibe of the place helps out a lot.
To the OP - ate at Shoal Creek recently, and the waitress confirmed they will be doing a boil all day Tuesday. There are plenty of other threads on this topic, though. Please use search next time.

there were fruit flies everywhere when i went, and that always freaks me out a little.
it was a po boy of some sorts.
i don't even remember what kind, but i do recall i wasn't thrilled with it.
maybe my order wasn't their best offering.
that whole plaza is not exactly chic, so it's definitely not that.
and, i will give them a second chance based on your recommendation, lest you think i am some uchi-slurping food snob ;-)
