Crawfish_small As Hurrican Katrina hit the Guld Coast, many people were evacuated from the region. Some came to Los Angeles. But being far from home doesn't mean you can't enjoy some of the Louisiana culture. Once every year Cain Angelle invites his friends to try some real Cajun crawfish. With all the species, vegetables and sausages. Properly served on a long table covered with newspaper.
