3RD ANNIVERSARY CRAWFISH BOIL

Saturday, May 30, 3 – 10 PM

At The Optimist, we’re kicking off our third anniversary with an all-day NOLA-style crawfish boil on the patio! While Executive Chef Adam Evans serves up crawfish and French Quarter-worthy bites, we’ll have plenty of cocktail specials—including Sazeracs and Hurricanes—and our first ever “Mudbug Run,” featuring racing crawfish and a 5-foot custom track we built for the party. Catch some Mardi Gras beads and pop your beer in a special anniversary koozie during the festivities.

Dinner reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 404.477.6260.
