A Tale (Tail?) of Two Crayfish Fests

Cray baby.
Cray baby.

Wondering where to celebrate your favorite crustacean this month? Sure, Aquavit has its annual Crayfish Festival for two weeks, from August 9 to 14 and 16 to 21. And, yes, the deal includes a half pound of peel-and-eat crayfish, plus an endless crayfish smorgasbord for $28 a head in the Bistro for lunch and $35 for dinner.

But wait.

For one day -- and one day only -- you can chow down on all-you-can-eat crayfish for $10 at Ikea's annual Crayfish Party. Kids, with their tiny bellies, can fill up on crawdads for just two-fitty. And you can stock up on frozen meatballs and assembly-required cheap furniture while you're at it.
