Crawfish Boil, Live Music On Memorial Day (Chicago,IL.)
Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails to Host Crawfish Boil
Memorial Day, also known as the unofficial kick-off to summer, deserves to be celebrated and what better way to do so than with an authentic Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil! New Orleans is not only known for its round-the-clock nightlife and vibrant music scene but also its Cajun cuisine and fresh seafood. Since most Chicagoans can’t make it down south for one of New Orleans’ legendary Crawfish Boils, Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails is bringing a boil to you.
Located in the heart of Wicker Park, this is the perfect opportunity to attend an event the whole family can enjoy all while getting a taste of the Big Easy culture.
On Monday, May 29th from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm Chicago’s favorite New Orleans-inspired restaurant will host their first annual Crawfish Boil. For $25/person guests will enjoy an all-you-can-eat crawfish boil with all the traditional fixins’ (Andouille Sausage, Potatoes, Corn) plus a pint of Abita beer.
Live musical entertainment will be provided by Environmental Encroachment and the fine folks from Abita Brewing Company will be on hand to facilitate a Tap Takeover that will run through the evening.
Weather permitting, Fifolet’s Crawfish Boil will be held outside on their recently refurbished Division St. patio.
About Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails: Named for the mystical blue lights that float above the bayous in Louisiana, Fifolet offers guests a memorable yet casual dining experience, vibrant bar scene and authentic taste of Southern culture – all under one roof. Executive Chef Kevin Crouse (formerly of Nouveau Tavern, the Mid-America Club and Fairways) has created a menu that combines classic Cajun and Creole flavors with unique preparations and unexpected ingredients.
The walls of the 60-seat restaurant are covered with an eclectic collection of paintings and Mardi Gras masks, all of which were created by New Orleans artists. A large fireplace surrounded by bookshelves makes the front room of Fifolet especially inviting on cold winter nights. The large centrally-located bar has ample seating, making it ideal for those who want to grab a drink with friends, unwind with colleagues after a long day or enjoy a nightcap with their significant other.
Fifolet accepts reservations for parties of all sizes and walk-ins are always welcome. The restaurant & bar is open Monday – Friday from 5:00 pm – 2:00 am, Saturday – Sunday from 3:00 pm – 2:00 am. For more information, please visit www.fifoletcajun or call 773-384-6886.
