10th Annual Crawdaddy Blues Festival

What's Got Into Your Craw?

via Wikicommons

What is a crawdad, you ask? Why, it's a little swamp critter eaten by Cajuns. (You might know it as a crawfish or crayfish.) I'm pretty sure we don't see too many of them around here, so if the 10th Annual CrawDaddy Blues Festival is your first exposure you should probably know some things: Crawfish are practically bugs (technically, freshwater crustaceans), they have beady little black eyes (no souls) and they taste amazing. See for yourself at the all-ages festival this Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, which costs $20 or $15 in advance and includes tons of fresh crawfish and live blues. Don't forget to suck the heads. There's yummy brain juice in there.
