Think of it as the ultimate boil: five hours of unlimited crawfish and sides, an open bar and live music.
Well, it’s happening, and to put the icing on the cake, it’s for a good cause.
Crawfish for Cancer is coming back for its second year May 18 at the Lazy Jack on the lakefront. The event started in 2008, when founder James Crowell renamed his annual crawfish boils in Massachusetts to honor his father, who was fighting multiple myeloma. In 2014, Crowell’s father died, but the festival continues in different cities to raise funds for cancer research. Other places with the festival include New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago.
For $75, tickets include unlimited crawfish and sides boiled by Three-Legged Dog, an open bar with beer, wine, and cocktails including a signature Firefly vodka sweet tea.
Tickets go up to $85 on May 11, and the day of the event, tickets will be $100 at the door.
