Crabtown in Bricktown
On Saturday, March 19th, the family of Margaret Brown attended a celebration of life memorial for Margaret. She was honored with two other members of the Wordwrights Christian Writers Club that had passed this last year. After the event, the family invited me to join them for lunch.
Margaret loved going to Crabtown in Bricktown with her family. I found out why. Crabtown is large enough to accommodate large tables of people, and the service is outstanding. However, the real magic happens when you order the Cajun Crab and Shrimp Boil. With an ornery grin, your server will ask you to raise your drinks off the table. In one well-orchestrated sweep by your server, a sheet of butcher paper covers your table. Everyone is served a serving of delicious and creamy coleslaw as a starter. Next comes your meal, served in silver buckets, filled to the brim with snow crab legs, shrimp in the shell, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, red skin 'taters, and boiled onion.
As everyone shares in the meal, the server has just dumped on your table; the feeling of family and community sets in. The conversation becomes lively as everyone reaches for their food. Laughter naturally happens, and stories are shared. The food is delicious. Every bite of each item is full of flavor. Silverware is not necessary to eat this meal like an authentic Cajun. The feeling of sharing makes this yummy meal turn into a magic feast. You will not walk away hungry.
If you have some in your party that are not seafood lovers, Crabtown offers many other dishes.
I recommend a trip to Crabtown and the Cajun Crab and Shrimp Boil as your next family outing.
