LSU Alumni & Fans,

The LSU Atlanta Alumni Chapter 2017 Crawfish Boil is here and will be hosted at Park Tavern @ Piedmont Park! Park Tavern is an ideal location to reach our potential in achieving our goals for this event and is also a popular Atlanta event venue. We are extremely thrilled that we were able to secure a date for Sunday May 21st from 2pm-6pm.

Here are a few important event details to keep in mind in your planning for that day:

  • Cash bar – no alcoholic beverages will be allowed in

We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you there!

As always, you need to order in advance for your required admission and any quantity of 3 lb. and 5 lb. platters of crawfish you desire.

Admission and Cajun buffet (Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya, Bread Pudding): $15 for adults, and under 12 free.

Crawfish Platters: Mudbug lovers have the additional option to order boiled crawfish platters in advance at 3 lb. for $25.00 or 5 lb. platters for $35.00. You can order as many platters in any combination to get just the amount of crawfish you want. Corn and potatoes come with the platters (while it lasts) and are not included in the stated weight. Note: there may be some extra crawfish available for purchase on the day of event, but we can only guarantee what you order by May 16th, the date we have to order crawfish from Louisiana.

Guests will be able to purchase any food/beverage items from the Park Tavern menu.

2012 Crawfish Boil Will Feature New Orleans Sounds

Thanks to sharp-eared LSU alum Harold Engler, we were alerted to a new band in Atlanta called The Mar-Tans that prominently features the sounds of New Orleans and Memphis in its repertoire. And thanks to our Champion Sponsor Duffy Realty of Atlanta, we are able to bring The Mar-Tans to the 2012 edition of "Crawfish Craze in Red Clay Country" on Saturday, April 21st at Bayou Allatoona (Corps of Engineers Riverside Park at Lake Allatoona).  Mark the date, more details and opening of sales will come over the next week.

The Mar-Tans may be a new band, but it is composed of seasoned professional musicians. Several members have played together for over 15 years. Check out these two clips "The Second Line"and  "Sadie/Iko Iko Medley" on Youtube from their debut show.  Keyboardist Matt Wauchope loves the piano styles of New Orleans and clearly has the likes of Huey Smith and Professor Longhair nailed down.

"If they're half as good as they sound in the clips, Atlanta has a great new band and we're in for a really good time," says New Orleans native Frank Duffy of Duffy Realty. In addition to sponsoring the band, super agent Rhonda Duffy will also contribute her professional auctioneering skills for our live auction.

Rhonda and Frank sell houses.  The Mar-Tans may bring the house down.  Watch for more Crawfish Craze news SOON!
