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

It's that time of the year again. Time to peel some exoskeletons.

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.]
