1764 Public House (39 N. Euclid Ave.) is excited to announce its first annual Crawfish Boil, to be held Saturday, May 12 on its patio in the Central West End.

Attendees can expect all-you-can-eat crawfish, live music from Reunion Jazz, West End Jazz and Voodoo Blues Band, and drink specials featuring Budweiser, Belvedere Vodka and Ardbeg Scotch — plus, plenty of good old-fashioned Southern hospitality.

“New Orleans is our sister city, and has been a source of great inspiration for us at 1764 Public House, so we thought what better way to honor New Orleans than to throw a party celebrating all the grand traditions and great flavors that have traveled up the Mississippi to St. Louis,” Gamlin Restaurant Group Proprietor Lucas Gamlin says.

Ryan Cooper, executive chef for Gamlin Restaurant Group, will cook up the fresh crawfish, which will be served alongside a hearty lowcountry boil of red potatoes, corn, and andouille sausage. Meanwhile, local bands will take the stage to offer plenty of Cajun flair.

“We can’t wait to spend the day celebrating with friends, old and new, and hope this will be an event people look forward to for years to come,” Gamlin says.

Tickets, which also include a complimentary Budweiser and souvenir pint glass, are available for $40 at 1764pub.com. Attendees will be able to choose from one of two sessions — 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.
