Get your bibs and beers ready for Memorial Day weekend. 700 pounds of tasty crawfish will be served up at the annual Abbot Kinney Crawfest taking place Sunday, May 24th at The Brig's outdoor parking lot.
They're doing it up the traditional way, and if you've never been to a crawfish boil, it goes a little something like this: thousands of crawfish along with a mighty heap of spicy Andouille sausage and seasoning get steamed up in a pot, then poured out onto the table where you dig in with your hands, make a mess and fill your belly. It's all you can eat, including jambalaya and drink.
Organized by bartenders, chefs and friends of Reiss Co. (parent company of The Brig, Salt Air, Sunny Spot, A-Frame), a portion of the proceeds goes to Venice Community Housing, a charitable organization that helps ow-income people achieve economic and personal stability through non-profit affordable housing, education, and a comprehensive network of supportive services.
Tickets // Early bird tickets $45 (until May 21); $55 at the door; $65 VIP gets you a swag bag too.
