OK, y'all—let's do this. It's crawfish time, and it's all for a great cause. The Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas will hold a crawfish and shrimp boil on Thursday, May 7 at the Argenta Plaza at 520 Main Street in North Little Rock. 

Hot bugs, cold beer, old buildings:  it's a tagline that works well for me. There's also going to be shrimp, sausage and something they are calling "fixins" which could just mean any old thing (but probably means corn and such). Not a beer drinker? Well, there will be wine and hurricanes available, too. Full press release is below:
