When we think about crayfish, the first things that come to mind are Sweden and flat-packed furniture with clean lines. Well, okay, not exactly, but this week we'll make an exception.This Friday at the Ikea in Tempe, enjoy an all-you-can-eat Crayfish Party. Tickets are only $10 per adult and $2.50 for the little ones.
