Mudbug Mayhem: Crawfest, Pinch-a-Palooza Boil Over New Orleans Schedules This Weekend
by Brad Rhines
If you can’t get an invitation to your neighbor’s crawfish boil this weekend, fret not. Even if the guy next door is being selfish with his shellfish, two local fests promise a bounty of mudbugs this weekend and both events feature plenty of great live music and local entertainment. Uptown, Tulane’s annual Crawfest promises plenty of fun in the sun for the coed crowd, while out in Bucktown the seafood stalwarts at Deanie’s host Pinch-A-Palooza, a street party for all ages.
