Boiled crawfish, 35 beers on tap at Jefferson St. Pub
It’s about time boiled crawfish came to downtown.
Last week, Jefferson Street Pub started serving steaming trays of hot crawfish. Actually, it’s teamwork that brought the boiling pots to downtown: caterer Crawdaddies is occupying a corner of the pub’s kitchen, putting out steaming orders, while the pub side is supplying 35 beers on tap, including Bayou Teche Brewery’s new offering, Highway 31, a pale ale. Local beer, local bugs, what’s not to like? Pots start boiling Tuesdays at 5 p.m., call 232-5040 for more info.
