Bayou Bakery in Courthouse (1515 N. Courthouse Road) will be holding a crawfish boil this weekend to help celebrate Memorial Day Louisiana-style.

Owner and chef David Guas will use a traditional recipe of lemons, cayenne pepper, paprika, bay leaves, garlic and salt to spice up the crawfish, which will be sold for $15 per pound with an accompaniment of potatoes and corn on the cob. Seven different types of Abita beer will also be offered.

In addition to the crawfish and beer, Bayou will be selling New Orleans-style sno-balls — thinly shaved ice topped with flavored syrups and a dollop of condensed milk.

To help welcome Rolling Thunder to town, the restaurant will be offering 10 percent off (excluding alcohol) to all vets and riders.

The boil will be held on Saturday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

        Don’t worry, you have nothing to worry about, your hearing will be shot soon.

          Fun hater.

    • Come on now… it’s a tradition! Think of it as the roar of freedom.

    Oh no, lets not start the noise in this thread.

    He also does a crawfish boil every Friday night.

      Ha. Kind of takes away from the “news” aspect.

      Cowboy Cafe also has crawfish that they get flown in every Friday.

    Get those bikers good and drunk and send them on their way! WOOOO!

  • Grateful

    I realize it may be an inconvenience for some, but I would guess that these “bikers” contribute several million dollars to the local economy!

      Did you remember to subtract out all the costs for police, emergency response, clean-up, etc.? How about the loss in revenue from local businesses due to all the locals staying in to avoid the thunderous drunken masses that weekend?

        Yep, I try to go out of town and spend my money elsewhere that weekend.

        And I don’t want their money in exchange for the noise. Not worth it. I’d pay to stop the noise.

    Wow… I used to schedule my classes to have Fridays off after noonish. We used to get 5 lbs of crawfish from a place on Jefferson-Davis for about $2.50 a lb… sometimes less!

    Those were the days…

  • Anyone know if this can be had “to go”?
