Each year Tulane University hosts the annual Crawfest. Its $10 on the door for all you can eat crawfish and pretty much unlimited sodas, and two stages for an afternoon lazing, gobling and listening to local music.

This year I dragged three new NOLA residents to Tulane, praying that the weatherman was mistaken and the ominous grey clouds would keep their legs crossed.

I gave them all a tutorial on how to eat these boiled and spiced delicacies – pull off the head and suck out the contents, pull off the tail and push the meat through the body with your thumb, and enjoy a little bit of heaven.
