Crawfish ball

That’s how you pronounce it. If you’re a Cajun. Or a groupie of a Cajun band.

Tonight’s the first night of Mudbug Madness, a two-night crawfish boil scheduled at Prairie Pines, featuring music from my friend Jaime’s band, The Mudbugs Cajun & Zydeco Band.

The event will feature food — fresh crawfish, jambalaya, corn on the cob, potatoes, and more. Musician Joe Stumpe will open for the Mudbugs, and cash bar will be available.

The festivities will be from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. today and Saturday at Prairie Pines, 4055 N. Tyler Road. Tickets are $31.95 by calling 316-303-2037 or go to They’re also available at the door.

I’ll be there tonight. Hope to see you there.
