All-you-can-eat (and listen to) Mudbugs

Poor little fella

The sixth annual Mudbug Madness, an all-you-can-eat craw fish extravaganza featuring music from the Mudbugs Cajun & Zydeco Band, is this weekend at Prairie Pines, 4055 N. Tyler Road.

It starts at 5:30 p.m. both Friday and Saturday nights and offers ticket holders access to an old fashioned craw fish boil and Cajun buffet followed by Cajun music that has historically inspired a mega dance party.

And if you don’t know how to eat craw fish, don’t you worry. The band sings several instructional tunes.

Ticket holders get access to the buffet plus non-alcoholic drinks. There will be a cash bar on site, and the band will play from 8 to 10:30 p.m.

For more information, call 316-303-2097.

A typical Mudbug Madness feast.

Wichitans don’t get a lot of chances to eat crawfish until they’re sick.

Prairie Pines finds that unacceptable.

From 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. on April 29 and 30, the venue at 4055 N. Tyler will host its third annual Mudbug Madness crawfish boil. Ticket holders will get all the crawfish they can eat plus homemade jambalaya, and music will be provided by local Cajun band, The Mudbugs. A cash bar also will be available.

Prairie Pines owner Kip Scott is testing Facebook effectivness today only by offering a ticket sale. The normal ticket price is $31.95, but anyone who calls  316-303-2037 and mentions “the Facebook deal” can get tickets for $24.95. I’d pick up the phone and call now, if I were you.

I’ll be there on Friday the 29th helping my friend Jaime, the Mudbugs drummer, sell her CDs. See you there. Aiiieeeeee!!
