#Issadate: Reddit to hold Atlanta crawfish boil meetup this weekend

If you’re a Reddit foodie who’s been dying to meet the people behind those upvotes, the stars have aligned for you.

Reddit user _Banana_phone  announced last week that a Reddit Crawfish Boil will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 9 at Ration and Dram, 130 Arizona Ave. NE. The meetup, which was an open invite to the more than 49,000 subscribers to the /r/Atlanta thread, is an opportunity for local Reddit users to congregate outside of the social media platform, according to the Reddit event post.

So, what’s the deal with crawfish?

It’s a pretty generous deal for those that delight in wrestling meat out of the little freshwater crustaceans. Each person will receive roughly 3-4 pounds of crawfish, a hearty helping of potatoes and corn. Though the tickets do not include a vegetarian option, there will be meatless items available for purchase on Ration and Dram’s menu.

Will there be drinks? Oh yes, there will. Ration and Dram is a cocktail hour favorite, so those in attendance will be able to purchase liquor, beer and wine at the bar. 

What will it cost me? Tickets to the crawfish boil are $15 and don’t include beverages.

Who can come? Organizers recognize that Reddit users have families, so, according to the Reddit post, “well-behaved children and dogs are included in the invite to this event.” However, the listing warns that sharp objects, drinking, open flames and strong language will also be a part of the afternoon gathering, so attend with children and pets at your own risk.

Where will I park? Utilizing a ride-share service is strongly suggested, since Ration and Dram’s parking lot is limited.

How can I RSVP? Those interested in attending can private message their RSVP to the event organizer on Reddit here.
