I was invited by The Cravin’ Cajun to join them at 8th Wonder Brewery for their 4th annual Crawfish and Beers fest. For someone who is allergic to crawfish and prefers to drink only the occasional tequila from time to time, the idea of attending a crawfish and beers event wasn’t as enticing. However, it was a lovely Sunday with sunshine and cool breeze. It would be a shame to stay indoor on a day like that.
I admit… it was part procrastination and part indecision that we didn’t secure our tickets online ahead of time. By the time we decided to attend the event, it was more expensive to get out tickets online than at the door. General admission was $20 and $40 will get you inside the venue along with 2lbs of steaming delicious crawfish and 3 pints of beers. There were many other patrons who were waiting in line to purchase their tickets as well.
8th Wonder Brewery often holds social events at the establishment so the space is quite large and very welcoming. There are numerous 8t Wonder specialty brews that guests shouldn’t have a problem satisfying even the pickiest taste buds.
As most of the shaded tables and seats were full, people were hanging out under the sun by these makeshift tabletops to enjoy their crawfish and beers.
After walking around to explore the area, we finally made a stop at The Cravin’ Cajun.
It was definitely torturous to see coolers and coolers of hot steamy boiled crawfish within reach that I cannot eat. As I sat at The Cravin’ Cajun‘s tent, I settled for a Vietnamese sandwich while being engulfed by the aroma of freshly cooked crawfish.
It was a great turn out. I was told it wasn’t as packed as last year’s event but it was still crowded nonetheless.
Jaxon had the right idea. A nap is definitely more important than crawfish and beers.
