Re-Bridge is hosting its second annual Boilin’ for the Bridges on Saturday, March 31 from 3 to 6 pm at a historic home to help raise matching funds to rehabilitate the Magnolia and Dumaine Street Bridges.
Last year’s Boilin’ for the Bridges was a rollicking good time and this year the crawfish are even bigger so we are expecting to draw an even larger crowd. Tickets are $30 ($5 for kids under 10 and babies in arms are free). Join the fun and get all the crawfish, Abita beer and soft drinks you can handle!
You may purchase tickets online at http://rebridge.org and also at Lux Salon at 3141 Ponce de Leon Street. For additional information please contact Rachel Dangermond at (504) 309-2116.
The title of this post “Don’t Eat the Straight Ones” refers to picking out only crawfish that were alive when boiled. Yes, crawfish have to be boiled alive and become curved when they hit the water. If the crawfish is still straight then it was dead before it hit the water.
The big feast you see in the photo above was for the “Boilin’ for the Bridges” fundraiser held last year. On March 31st of this year the fun will begin again!
