LOL!




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

There’s basically nothing I understand in that statement

Then you need to get you some crawfish and gumbo. Then you'll know!

A couple of decades, ago my wife and I ate at Foti’s Restaurant in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Of course, we ordered crawfish.

The waitress set down some newspaper and dumped a couple of dozen crawfish on the table. We both started laughing.

The next time the waitress passed by, we stopped and apoligized. We did not know how to actually eat the crawfish.

The waitress sat down, grabbed a crawfish, and showed us how to split the shell open to get to the meat. She explained that not everyone enjoyed eating the brains, but she did.

The dnner was delicious. My sticky, saucy, spicy fingers had left so much sauce on the beer glass that I was tempted to lick it. I’m sure my wife stopped me.

these should be extra text, "that's 20 seconds for you northerners" (or whatever they're called in nola)

To give context - In boiling a 40 pound sack of crawfish, with the salt and other spices is about 1-2 pounds of ground cayenne pepper. That's in about 20 gallons of boiling water.

Like Todd's Keyboard mentioned, your fingers get covered with the solution when eating the crawfish.

I know I'm gonna be the outlier here, but I've never really gone for crawfish. (I did "get" the sign though.)

I like the crawfish meat in other things, like pasta for example, but the whole crawfish -- and sucking out the meat/brains -- ewww, just gross. But then, I'm not huge for crustaceans in general (not a big lobster person either), though I do love regular fish, not crazy about shellfish... scallops, yes, but not into oysters, mussels, and all the rest. It's a texture thing.

That's such a normal thought process (re/not touching your eye area after eating crawfish) that I wouldn't have even looked twice at the sign.

FWIW, even though I was born & raised in New Orleans, and lived there up through Katrina (birth to about 40 years old), I never ate crawfish. I mean, I tried it a couple of times, but it wasn't my bottle of Barq's, so to speak. I went to the big crawfish boils with family all the time, sure, but I usually grabbed a po'boy on the way (or there were po'boys there). The gathering was more important than the food, anyway.

Not touching your eyes was a learned skill, especially during the hotter months of the boils. (Crawfish boils, or berls, were a spring thing and, yeah, it got hot early in the region) I can vividly remember the sight of relatives (now long passed) wiping their sweaty brows and eyes with a kitchen towel or the near-elbow of their arm.

I'll look for some pics today; those were fun events. I'm sure I have some of the folding tables covered in crawfish.

For now, though, this sign will suffice:

Zoid, that sign is part of why I've had trouble acclimating ... I'm not really into sports, have already mentioned that I'm not crazy about cray, I'm also a teetotaler, and not into parties or large, noisy crowds.

All that being said, the food here IS hard to beat... kind of addicted to catfish po'boys. Still haven't had a really good snoball though.

Ditto. I'm happy when the Saints win, but I don't really follow them. I just about never eat seafood, save for occasional blackened fish or fried shrimp.

I marched in Mardi Gras parades from middle school through college; I love Mardi Gras but rarely went to the parades in later years.

Sno-balls & food, though. That. And you cannot beat NOLA for food.

I love Barq's but wouldn't touch a crawfish, unless maybe, my life depended on it.

A former coworker grew up in NOLA and talked about the food, and eating every last bit of crawfish, and that pretty much locked me out of considering them as food, LOL.

Even though I knew nothing of traditional serving, the sign was obvious, and hilarious.

I suppose it could have said '...chopping onyuns' or '...chili peppers' but it wouldn't have been as funny.

Kudos to whomever thought that sign.

Ain't that the truth. My first night ever in the city, I was brought to a seafood restaurant where I had just about the best grouper I've ever had in my life ... just about perfectly seasoned. I'm pretty sure I'd had grouper before, and never thought much of it as a type of fish, but this was just insanely good. Oh, that and Zea's bread pudding.

I spent a week in NOLA about a year before Katrina. The food they're so popular for just isn't my style. I tried several local dishes and just didn't care for it.

You ate at the wrong spots, esp if they were the tourist-y areas.

Agreed. Most of the best food are in the "neighborhood joints", e.g., the smaller hole-in-the-wall places that are mostly frequented by the locals. Some of the better-known restaurants/chains are quite great too, like Zea's and Copeland's, but many of the best are just a place that you wouldn't have known about unless you happened to be in that neighborhood. There's a great brunch place not too far from me that falls in that category, I go there as a special treat for their buttermilk pancakes and waffles, and wouldn't even have known about it except for a former student of mine who clued me in.

That's great!

I do enjoy shrimp, but not sure I can say I've ever had crawfish.
