You love to celebrate seafood, beads, king cakes and drinking until Mardi Gras is over? And you aren't going to NoLa this year? So what! Shuck Shack (520 E. Grayson St., 210-236-7422) is throwing its first ever crawfish boil on Friday, February 5, and you need to be there. Plus, your liver is probably praising your newfound decision-making skills.

Chef Jason Dady (owner of Shuck Shack) has purchased 800 lbs. of straight up crawfish in preparation for the event. For $21, you can secure yourself a 3-pound tray with sides of corn and potatoes, meanwhile, helping yourself to an authentic $3 Abita pint. However, be warned, the mudbudgs are first come, first served, and when it's gone, it's gone!

The boil begins at 2 p.m. and will last until 7 p.m. Now, if you're planning to carry on (in the true spirit of Mardi Gras) a little longer, the Shuck Shack will be showing the Spurs vs. Dallas game at 8:30 p.m. It's time to get dirty, my friends.
