'CRAWS FOR A CAUSE'
7 p.m., Dickey-Stephens Park. $44 adv., $55 d.o.e.

And here, back for a fourth year, is, no doubt, the biggest crawfish boil of the year. The numbers are astronomical: somewhere in the vicinity of 5,000 people, gutting eight tons of crawfish and draining just under 90 kegs of beer. That's something like a quarter of a million crawfish and 11,000 pints of beer. As always, the Bacchanalian benefits Baptist Health's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), raising money for top-of-the-line incubator beds, which run $70,000 apiece. This year, the live entertainment duties are handled by acoustic bar-rocker Barrett Baber and always-popular pop-rock party band Boom Kinetic.
