It is CRAWFISH SEASON and we want to shout out ALL the businesses selling that delicious mudbug!

We even made it easier to find the hot spots with the best crawfish in The Heights!! 

We have created a blog to direct you to our favorite locations in The Heights for Crawfish!

We wanted to give a shout to the ever eclectic, yet always hoppin’ Heights!

They have a great variety of local businesses and restaurants and so many places to walk or bike. It’s such a wonderful neighborhood and one of our favorites to just hanging out, grab a drink, and go shopping!
