Need Something To Do Saturday?

Posted By on Sat, Aug 25, 2012 at 6:00 AM

Barbecues tend to involve limited culinary fare: hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad. But today, you can nosh outdoors on something totally unique: fresh-water crustaceans.

The Blue Canoe Restaurant in Guffey will host its annual Crawdad Feed today. Dozens of lobster cousins will be cooked up for the feed at 6 p.m. and crawdad-eating contest at 7 p.m. But things get going long before, with live music beginning at noon and different acts taking the stage until 8 p.m., a wine-and-cheese tasting from 2-4 p.m. and a horseshoe tournament kicking off at 4 p.m.

Entry into the eating contest is $5 and the feed costs $25.

Not feeling like shellfish? Burgers, hotdogs and ribs will be available for purchase, as well. Whatever your food preference, wash it back with 16-ounce PBRs for $1.50.

Long-term fans of the event can show off their seniority by earning a prize for wearing the oldest crawdad feed T-shirt or hat, and attendees may end up netting door prizes.

So, where exactly is Guffey? Find out, and learn more about the Blue Canoe and its Crawdad Feed, here.
