A Cajun Bash & Boil in Dallas, Texas

Submitted by on March 20, 2019 – 8:41 amNo Comment

Louisiana Cajun Bash & BoilIf you’ve got Cajun crawfish on your mind, but you’re headed to Dallas, Texas, at the end of next month, consider scheduling a stop at the Louisiana Cajun Bash & Boil sponsored by the Dallas Chapter of the Louisiana State University Alumni Association.

It takes place from 1 to 6 p.m. April 27, 2019, at Gas Monkey Live, 10110 Technology Boulevard East, Dallas, Texas. The LSU alumni chapter’s 39th Annual Crawfish Boil will raise scholarship money for students in the Dallas/Fort Worth area going to LSU.

The chapter promises more than 3000 pounds of Louisiana crawfish with corn and potatoes, plus crawfish étouffée, red beans and rice, crawfish pistolettes, among other Cajun delights.

There also will be live music, beignets, and snow cones (did you know that a New Orleans snow cone has icream in the middle and condensed milk drizzled on top?).

As Road Trips Foodies know, crawfish boils are a springtime tradition in Louisiana, which produces almost 90% of the domestic crop. More than 1,600 farmers produce crawfish in some 111,000 acres of ponds. More than 800 commercial fishermen harvest crawfish from natural wetlands, and cultivated farms, primarily in and around the Atchafalaya Basin. The combined annual yield ranges from 120 million to 150 million pounds. The total economic impact on the Louisiana economy exceeds $300 million annually, and more than 7,000 people depend directly or indirectly on the crawfish industry.
