MISSION— Finding a proper New Orleans-style crawfish boil in the Bay Area is a challenge, so fans of the miniature crustaceans will be pleased to learn of the upcoming NOLA Feast: Pop-up Crawfish Boil. The boil is hosted by chef Adam Rosenblum (who has worked at NOLA's Herbsaint restaurant with chef Donald Link) and Alvin Garcia (Causwell's) with a live brass band, crispy boudin, meat pies, beignets and plenty of mudbugs. The boil takes place Friday, May 15 starting at 6 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]

The event is Saturday, May 16 from 11 a.m- 6 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]
