Fat Tuesday @ Char No. 4 in Brooklyn - Crawfish Boil

Do you think Fat Tuesday is only a major celebration in New Orleans? Welp, its now in New York. Fat Tuesday, according to Catholic religion (and wikipedia), is the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.

So what will you be doing? Today I will be venturing out to Brooklyn to Char No. 4 to experience their version of Fat Tuesday. In addition to their regular menu, Char. No. 4 will have a Crawfish boil from 6 pm to midnight. .

"The crawfish boil includes (in addition to crawfish) shrimp, clams, homemade andouille sausage and potatoes as well as an ice cold Abita Restoration Ale all for $23 per person not including tax and tip. It can be ordered for one person and will be served family style for groups of 2 or more."
The bartender Scott Gold, a native New Orleanian, will be on hand to demonstrate proper crawfish eating technique for anyone who needs a little helping hand.

Reservation will be accepted should you care to make one.
