This Fenway favorite promises a classic low country crawfish boil complete gulf shrimp, andouille sausage and corn– and without all the New Orleans humidity! A $40 ticket gets you the taste of classic Louisiana seafood with king cake and cocktails strong enough to knock your mask off! Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite, but you’ll need to call Sweet Cheeks and set a reservation time!

For Bourbon St. Entertainment: The Beehive
