Mudbug Madness! | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Mudbug Madness!




We came, we saw, we demolished 70 lbs. of crawfish at Gus & Tony Magann's annual crawfish boil in Emigration Canyon on Saturday. 


Got to meet Bowman and Viet, the owner/chefs of soon-to-open restaurant Forage. This is them foraging for mudbugs. BTW: Viet won -- hands down the best crawfish deconstructor of the bunch.


Wanna throw your own crawfish boil (and invite me)? Here are a couple of good sources for fresh, live mudbugs:

Louisiana Crawfish Company

Cajun Grocer
