Get ready to don your bibs and roll up your sleeves because the ultimate crawfish boil extravaganza is on the horizon! Hosted by ABQLive and Rio Bravo Brewing, this June 9th event promises to be a crustacean celebration like no other.

But before you dive headfirst into those delicious mudbugs, let‘s brush up on some essential crawfish boil etiquette to ensure you’re cracking, sucking, and enjoying like a pro!

    1. Embrace the Bib Life: First things first—grab a bib! Crawfish boils are messy affairs, and there’s no shame in protecting your threads from the inevitable splatter of Cajun seasoning and juicy crawfish goodness.
    2. Get Hands-On: Crawfish
      are meant to be eaten with your hands, so ditch the utensils and embrace the finger-licking goodness. Don’t be afraid to get a little messy—it’s all part of the fun!
    3. The Art of the Twist and Pull: To tackle those crawfish like a true pro, start by twisting and pulling the tail away from the body. Then, pinch the end of the tail and gently squeeze to release the meat. Voila—pure crawfish bliss!


4. Don’t Forget the Suck: Once you’ve devoured the tail meat, don’t neglect the savory juices trapped inside the crawfish head. Give it a good suck to savor every last drop of flavor-packed goodness.

5. Pace Yourself: With a mountain of crawfish at your disposal, it can be tempting to dive in headfirst. But remember to pace yourself and savor each bite. There’s no rush—enjoy the experience!

6. Share the Love: Crawfish boils are all about camaraderie and good times, so be sure to share the love with your fellow boil enthusiasts. Pass the platter, swap stories, and revel in the joy of communal feasting.

7. Wash it Down: What pairs perfectly with spicy crawfish? Ice-cold beer, of course! Grab a refreshing brew from Rio Bravo Brewing to wash down those flavorful bites and keep the good times rolling.

8. Mind Your Manners: While crawfish boils may be casual affairs, basic manners still apply. Be courteous to your fellow boil-goers, clean up after yourself, and thank your hosts for putting on an epic event.
