Cosimo’s on Burgundy has long hosted a popular neighborhood crawfish boil which has now encountered some opposition from neighbors. Crawfish boils are a part of our culture, rich or poor, and without some serious reasons which I can’t even imagine, this one needs to continue. That part of the Quarter has long had some crime issues and anytime we can put some “eyes on the street”, frivolity and food together, we should. Stop in at Governor Nicholls and Burgundy (and get a nice happy hour drink which is one of the best in the Quarter) and sign their petition.
