Eat Some Mud Bugs for Charity at McCabe Pub



We're right in the peak of crawfish season, and by all accounts it's been a surprisingly good one. Surprising because flooding rains in the first part of 2013 endangered the breeding grounds of the delicious little crustaceans. Fortunately, crawdads are a resilient and prolific lot, and the harvest has been quite healthy this year.

So before the season begins to peter out in late May and June, you should definitely take advantage of the upcoming opportunity to enjoy a crawfish boil at McCabe Pub on Murphy Road this Saturday, April 27, from 3 to 8 pm. The event will include all-you-can-eat crawfish in the parking lot, and your $30 admission includes all the fixin's, three drink tickets, a cash bar, live music and other entertainment. Tickets will be available at the door, cash or check only.

Most importantly, the proceeds will benefit the LAM Foundation, a cause that is near and dear to McCabe and their legion of regular fans. LAM is a merciful abbreviation of Lymphangioleiomyomatosis, a disease that leads to a cystic destruction of the lung. McCabe co-owner Stefanie Dean Brown suffered from an undetected kidney tumor that ruptured in 2010, almost killing her unborn son. Unfortunately, the event led to his being born with cerebral palsy, and Stefanie was diagnosed with LAM. The disease will continue to attack her lungs for the rest of her life, but Brown aims to do her part to help cure LAM through her support of the foundation, which seeks safe and effective treatments, and ultimately a cure through advocacy and the funding of promising research.

So mark your calendar and head over to Murphy Road for a great party that will help out a good cause and recognize a member of the first family of Sylvan Park.
