Traditional Crawfish Boil at Little Cleo's Seafood Legend
Saturday, May 30

This weekend, kick off summer with a Louisiana tradition that's almost as American an apple pie. On Saturday, Little Cleo's Seafood Legend, located at The Yard in Central Phoenix, will host a classic Southern-style crawfish boil. For $36 per guest, each diner will receive a one-pound bag of boiled crawfish, snow crab, along with sweet corn, red potatoes, andouille sausage . . . and hopefully a very large stack of napkins.
