The 16th annual St. Mary’s Knights of Columbus Crawfish and Bluegrass Extravaganza is set for Saturday, April 14, at St. Mary Parish, 1453 Old Shell Road, 4-8 p.m. Tickets cost $30 in advance or $35 at the gate for adults. Kids aged 13-18 get in for $15 while 12 and under get in free.
Enjoy all-you-can-eat crawfish with all the trimmings, gumbo, hot dogs and chips as well as adult beverages, soft drinks and more for this family fun event. Live music will be performed by Fat Man Squeeze. The rain-or-shine event is my favorite of the year.

St. Patrick’s Day fun
We have so many options this year for St. Paddy’s Day. O’Daly’s starts the day with Kegs and Eggs at 6 a.m. followed by a green champagne brunch from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The live music schedule and green dress run are impressive–read more about it in the music section of this week’s Lagniappe.
Newcomer Dublin Irish Pub and Eatery has already had a soft opening and plan for their first grandiose St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday. There’s a fish and chips eating contest, breakfast beginning at 6 a.m., tons of music and debauchery all day long. Welcome to the club.
Callaghan’s Irish Social Club is still the area’s biggest St. Paddy’s party and has been keeping it green since 1946. The 72nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Street Party may be the best one yet. If you’ve never been you should strongly consider it. I’ll say no more.
Krispy Kreme is bringing back its “O’riginal” glazed doughnut for two days this year. On March 16 and 17, a green dough (formulated by leprechauns) glazed donut will be hot and ready. Show them how you celebrated the O’riginal Glazed with #GreenDoughnuts. Eat responsibly.
