The LSU San Diego Alumni Association annual crawfish boil is just around the corner - May 26 - and I'm getting all tingly inside!
Rex and I attended last year's event (see photos below) just a couple of weeks after leaving Louisiana and it was a blast.
The event is billed as the biggest crawfish boil this side of the Rocky Mountains - and it might very well be all of that.
The club trucks in more than 12,000 pounds of live mud bugs from Louisiana and cooks them in giant boilers mounted on a tractor trailer. There's also lots of Abita beer and Zydeco music.
I'm a member of this year's Crawfish Boil Committee, so I'm expecting the boil will be an all-day affair for me. I'm hoping to get enough friends to pony up the $45 each to reserve a 10-seat table. You've got until April 15 to let me know if you want to join in.
We'll be sucking heads and biting tails at a new location this year - a grassy area next to Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers.
I can't wait to see the Rexter chow down on crawdads again. He's crazy about them. You should see what he does when they serve boiled Chinese crawfish at the casino buffet.
