Crawfish Boil

The World's Largest Crawfish Boil was a huge success! Zatarain's broke 2 records in just 2 hours after selling out 29,000 pounds of crawfish to over 8,000 people. 
According to the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the event broke the record for the largest attendance, and the largest amount of crawfish boiled at a crawfish boil in a single day.  More importantly, the event raised $40,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank!
 Though the crawfish didn't last as long as planned, it was a really amazing event - with free live music and  a ton of beer for sale!
Hopefully the success of the event will encourage more organizations and companies to throw similar city-wide crawfish boils! 
I had a wonderful time eatin' crawfish, drink in' beer and showing off my fabulous crawfish shoes!
How cute are those?

World's Largest Crawfish Boil

Zatarain’s  is celebrating their 125th birthday by throwing the biggest crawfish boil that New Orleans (and the world) has ever seen - and everyone is invited! I'll be there elbow deep in crawfish groovin' to the jams by Flow Tribe and Big Sam’s Funky Nation. Y'all should come too! Admission is free - and it's only $3 for three pounds of crawfish - that's just $1 per pound!!!! Plus, all the proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.
The event will take place on Saturday, May 10th from 12-6 at Champion Square
Hope to see y'all there!
