Okay, y’all I have been obsessed with crawfish for about 40 years..LOL..Seriously, I have been on this crawfish kick all season. I wanted to blog about some of the most amazing “thrillest” spots in the city. that may be under the radar. I took my daughter on the last crawfish tour and she had some opinions about a few.some were more favorable than others. Crawfish is a strange food. Tourists either really love it or really hate it. Most locals really look forward to crawfish season and know what the phrase “pinch the tail and suck the head” means. The phrase describes how you eat crawfish. Once the head of the crawfish is separated from the tail you pinch it and suck the juice out. If the juice is really tasty, you will find yourself eating more and more…LOL. Real crawfish problems!! I have finally narrowed down the most lit spots in the city.
5. Cansecos - If you’ve eaten crawfish before, you know the logistics about them. I prefer crawfish hot..these were cold and rollin!!
4. Rouses - The crawfish lines are so long at this grocery for a reason. They have a distinctive flavor that many locals favor. It’s not too spicy..just right. Very old school flavor.
3. Broadview Seafood – We indulged in their spicy crawfish for Mardi Gras. Wesley wasn’t super crazy about these but mommy enjoyed. They were spicy and juicy..just what we needed with our drinks..
2. Luck Jean -I mean, really…THIS.. Crawfish..Hands down should be number 1 but I had to give it to the champs.. I was channeling my inner Beyonce “Lemonade” singing..”mama Louisiana” eating this crawfish. It was, just downright good. It was the right kind of spicy…my daughter was in the back seat asking for more.
1. Cajun – Cajuns are the BEST. They have 4 locations (Treme, Uptown, East, Almonaster). They are also called “The Original Cajun Seafood”. I just found out about the Almonaster location. The best way to describe the flavor of this crawfish, is really spicy and savory. The boiled dungeness crabs are amazing. Cajuns crawfish tastes better hot for some reason.

You can fly the friendly skies for less than the cost of a birthday party these days. Take a trip to a place you and your family have been talking about all year. Disney seems to be a common theme for the little ones.
Plan activities that will honor a person, group, business, or service that brings happiness to your child.
If your toddler delights in story time at the public library, have the guests create a giant card to say "thank you" to the librarians and library staff. If your preschooler is fascinated with fire trucks, invite party guests to make several batches of cookies or other sweet treats to deliver to the local fire department.
Really simple! Don't buy a single thing for any of the party's activities. Encourage adults at the party to teach the guests some of their favorite and "vintage" party games. Turn everyone loose outside for freeze tag, or have the adults create a scavenger hunt. Challenge yourself to cut out any unnecessary stuff when it comes to party activities.
If your focus is on less stuff, the issue of gifts will have to be addressed. Be a SAINT and take a bold action against consumption, you could ask guests to forgo traditional gifts. Closet space does get limited after a while.
Rather than showering the guest of honor with toys or clothes, ask each guest to bring a letter-sized paper filled with words and pictures that celebrate the birthday child. Collages, poems, songs, inside jokes, and favorite memories could fill pages that you could slip into a photo album after the party.
Rather than bringing in more "stuff" that will eventually be tossed or outgrown, your child would have a tangible reminder of his value and worth.
You can also ask for a gift to donate to charity. Consider the organizations that are in need of donations in your community and invite party guests to partner with your family in meeting the needs of others.
