Alright. So I wasn't on this forum for this party last year, but since I'm here now I figured I'd share this occasion with everyone. The actual party isn't until tomorrow at 1 pm and is following my daughter's Baptism tomorrow morning at 10 am.
This is a party we do every year and the date changes. My parents, who live in New Orleans still, come up every year flying Southwest. They bring along with them 2 sacks of crawfish (usually 35 lbs each) and a sack of oysters. Each sack of crawfish and oysters get packed separately so they weigh less than 50 lbs and they fly free on Southwest as checked luggage. It's Great!!!
We do a big party with a crawfish boil and oyster shucking. The oyster are done both on the grill as chargrilled oysters and they're also eaten raw by those that like that...I don't. There's home brewed beer flowing and bags being played. It's a general great time every time (sometimes too much fun ;)).
I'll have some picks of the live bugs tonight and of the oysters. I'll try and take photos throughout the boil and probably update the thread Sunday or Monday.
