Overlooking the San Marcos River, the smells of crawfish, the sparkles of Bellini’s, and the sounds of Zydeco music were ever present at the Three Dudes Winery annual crawfish boil.
Patrons and their families had the opportunity to satisfy their cravings for shellfish and fine wines at the Three Dudes Winery annual crawfish boil March 28, 2015.
At the family friendly event, you had the opportunity to do a wine tasting of four of The Dudes famous wines, take in the views of the San Marcos River and enjoy the live music.
Emily Herring, a musician from Houston, Texas entertained the crowd with her combination of Cajun, Zydeco and Tejano music as she sang and played the guitar. Herring was the sole performer for the event.
Besides crawfish as a main dish, The Dudes had a tin pail filled with live crawfish to entertain attendees old and young alike. Having live crawfish available brings new meaning to playing with your food.
Nicholas Papachriston, a New Braunfels local, attended the crawfish boil for the first time. Papachriston had nothing but great things to say about the event. His favorite part of the day was the frozen peach Bellini’s made with the winery’s own White Zinfandel.
When you purchase a ticket to the crawfish boil, it includes one platter piled high with crawfish, red potatoes and corn. Plates were sold differently this year as pre- sales instead of sold by the plate at the door. The crawfish was served promptly at 3:00 p.m. right out of a brand new canoe.
Tickets were sold at $14 and wine club members received 20% off of their tickets. When tickets were purchased, your name was added to the guest list.
