Pinch A Palooza is all about the crawfish

Posted by Deanie's Seafood on Mar 26 2015

More than just your typical crawfish boil: compete to be the Crawfish Eating Champion and race live crawfish!

In South Louisiana, crawfish are more than just something to eat. They are a reason for people to gather together when the weather starts to warm up and indulge in their favorite traditions built around the mudbugs. Louisianians anticipate the start of crawfish season all year and when it’s finally time to eat them, people travel to their favorite local restaurants and seafood markets to buy them already prepared or buy sacks of live crawfish to boil in their backyards with friends and family.

Deanie’s Ask A Local Mardi Gras Edition

Posted by Deanie's Seafood on Feb 25 2015

Deanie’s Bucktown employees share their favorite Mardi Gras traditions

As a local favorite, Deanie’s Seafood Restaurants love New Orleans culture and traditions- especially the Big Easy’s most famous celebration, Mardi Gras and all that goes along with it.

Carnival season begins on January 6 with the Epiphany, and continues until Mardi Gras Day or “Fat Tuesday,” the final day before Ash Wednesday and Lent begins. Throughout the season, the city transforms into a celebration of colorful costumes, parades, block parties, music, floats and, as usual in New Orleans, good food!

Mardi Gras is the biggest draw of visitors all year in the city, and falls this year on Feb. 17.  We asked some of our employees at our original Bucktown location what their favorite ways to spend Mardi Gras are, and here’s what the locals said!
