Here in New Orleans, we’ve come upon the magic season- the days are longer, the air is just warm enough and the crawfish are boiling. That’s right, it’s crawfish boil season: the time when we all gather across the city with friends, old and new, and indulge in one of the things NOLA folks do best. Here’s the official Very Local New Orleans list where you can get some of the good stuff and a few cold drinks, along with the times and prices of crawfish while you’re at it. You’re gonna wanna bookmark this one, y’all!
