Get Your Party Hat On: 6 Crawfish Boils in Dallas-Fort Worth

It’s early in the crawfish season, but several Dallas and Fort Worth restaurants are already boiling it up. They can’t seem to wait. Warm weather, sun-bathed patios, cold beers, and great company call for a massive email to all your friends, asking who’s ready to stuff their face. Here’s where you should lead them:

1. Cajun Tailgators – 1112 E 15th St, Plano. 469-304-0313. (Saturday, March 1, noon to 6 p.m.)


2. Hot Damn Tamales – 713 W Magnolia Ave, Fort Worth. 817-926-9909. (Saturday, March 1, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)


3. The Rustic – 3656 Howell St, Dallas. 214-730-0596. (Sunday, March 2, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)


4. Dallas Fish Market – 1501 Main St, Dallas. 214-744-3474. (Tuesday, March 4, all day.)


5. Greater Dallas Restaurant Association – 2201 N. Lamar St., Dallas. (Tuesday, March 18, 6 to 9 p.m.)


6. Frisco Square – 6142 Frisco Square Blvd., Frisco. (Thursday, April 6, 5 p.m.)


[Update 3/3/14: Markus Pineyro just alerted me to this crawfish boil at Hook Line & Sinker on March 22.]
