Default A Party

Sorry..there are many photos!

I (with help) cooked a crawdad boil for some friends and neighbors recently...
We had a barn dance.


lemons, onions, garlic, crawdad boil seasoning, coarse salt, cayenne pepper.
75lb crawdads
Cooked
75lb smoked sausage
75lb shrimp
65lb crab legs
65lb potatoes
300 ears corn on the cob
420 slices grilled garlic bread
cocktail sauce
garlic butter





garlic






more potatoes... I cut the larger ones in half for even cooking.



We grilled garlic bread...



made cocktail sauce...



some of the shrimp..



smoked sausage..



some crab legs...



did not get pictures of corn or crawdads.

putting food tent up at friend's ranch..













food tent...



Day of the party we loaded up beer, whiskey, tequila, rum, Jack, Crown, vodka, and others....









and ice...



beer meets ice.

we used 5 ft stock tanks.



layered beer and ice...












Rented porta potties and a wash station...


my bff helping. :)




The bar on the work bench...whiskey, rum, wine and others...



music....



used 7 cooking pots...

and a garlic butter pot.






and crab leg pot...






Had more help than we planned on. :)





There were three of us cooking, we kept the tables full all night...










and we danced...

not good pictures, I was busy cooking and dancing.

we listened to 'Boot Scootin" music...and we "Polished our belt buckles" (slow danced).








There were people of all ages there.. :)




I left at 3 am and the party was still going strong.


two days later....




Didn't take me long to realize I was better off taking pics.
















When we started planning this thing we estimated 75 people ....by the time of the party we had 250. It was great though....lots of fun.


Thanks for looking!

What a great party, had a good laugh at the PU full of adult beverages and another full of ice. I would guess a crawfish/crab boil in OK was a real treat for folks. Thanks for sharing.
