…did that grab your attention? Good!
If you’re a Houstonian and you like beer and crawfish (and what good Houstonian doesn’t?), then you absolutely can’t miss the annual MDA Crawfish Boil & Music Festival that’s being held on Saturday, March 29th at Warehouse Live.
For only $35, you’ll be able to bury your face in as many buckets of crawfish as you can eat, and there will — of course — be plenty of beer (or cokes or water) to wash it all down with. That’s a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me.
Even better, the money goes to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and their research, so you’ll be doing a good thing while you’re bolting down those delicious little mud bugs. The MDA is a partnership between scientists and local citizens that battles neuromuscular diseases affecting more than a million Americans. Specifically, the proceeds from the MDA Crawfish Boil & Music Festival will go to benefit families in the Houston and Gulf Coast region who are fighting muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases.
The all-you-can-scarf-crawfish-and-beer window runs from 4pm to 7pm, so make sure you get there early to maximize your crawfish eating time. Live music will be performed throughout the event, by such great Texas musicians as Bleu Edmondson and Rich O’Toole. The festival runs until 10pm, so make sure you stay past 7pm to catch the main acts: Micky & the Motorcars and Honeybrowne.
Sadly, yours truly won’t be able to make this event (which is being headed up by my awesome friend and bridesmaid and committed healthcare professional and dedicated MDA volunteer, Robin), as I’ll be heading overseas on March 21st. But I hope that you good crawfish-eating, beer-enjoying, music-loving, charity-giving Houstonians will head out to the MDA Crawfish Boil and have a wonderful time!
Last year’s festival was almost too big for the venue (over 700 people!), so it’s been moved to Warehouse Live this year. I’m sure that this year will be even better than the last and — with any luck — some of our cooler local personalities like Isiah Carey and Leslie T will be in attendance once again.
