Default Well, I made it to 40...

And my wife is insisting on throwing me a crawfish boil. I am trying to tell her they are too d**m expensive but she won't have it. Do any of yall have any contacts in the Corpus area where a fella could get crawfish without giving up a piece of anatomy?

Ray would also be you're best bet, Morgan street seafood also has them, you can also buy live sacks from most of the local HEB's.

Depending on the day you want them, I wouldn't be opposed to splitting up a sack, if you didnt need a whole sack. Let me know, Thanks!

It’s pricey right now. 150#s is quite a bit though. Easily enough for 30-40 people.

We are going to have 37 adults and 27 kids.. Most kids will probably eat the hot dogs. Going to have sausage, shrimp(maybe), boil veggies (potatoes, corn, mushrooms, black olives, lemons, oranges, garlic), veggie trays, chips/dip, and desserts. Thinking 150 lbs of crawdads should be enough but not really familiar with throwing a shindig this big..

I don't do that sort of thing but I'd think 150# would be far too much. I'd assume half the adults would pick out just shrimp and/or sausage.

You have a very special set of friends if they average 4 pounds of crawfish each with all that other food there also.

Happy Birthday. Have fun!

I refused to let my wife throw me a 40th birthday party.

She wanted to, I refused and told her I wouldn’t show up.

I went fishing.

You made it to 40, who cares what they cost because if you felt like me that was a freaking miracle you made it and the heavenly trumpets should have started playing..

Now your eyesight will start turning to crap so go buy some readers and be prepared, your twig and berrys might start needing some extra pizazz soon to get his slow reactions times going and keeping him on alert in case of an emergency tax session comes up, your hairs going to start falling out, your beard turning white, your butt getting droopy, man boobs will be coming soon and you start hurting all over for some strange reason.. Yep getting older is absolutely awesome so Happy Birthday buddy

FYI most of those are actually true, I’ll let you figure out which ones in the near future LOL

OP, to go along with what Dale posted, remember boiled crawfish is a social food! You don't eat to get filled up. You eat as an excuse to stand around and talk n tell tall tales with friends until you get to tired (or inebriated) to stand or at to tired to peel the little suckers...
