Like life, spot prawn season is short and messy. So why not roll up your sleeves and dive in?
This is the second year that the Donnelly Group has hosted a spot prawn boil, in which they cover the tables with newspaper and pour on buckets of prawns for diners to tackle family-style. With it there's corn on the cob, green beans, new potatoes and bread to mop things up. Leave room for rhubarb cake.
The sold-out event on May 18 was so successful that they've added another this weekend. It kicks off this Sunday (June 1) at 6:30 p.m. at the Blackbird Public House & Oyster Bar. The first bucket drops at 7 p.m.
Oh, and of course, there will be beer. A representative from Driftwood Brewing Company will be on hand pouring pints of Fat Tug IPA, White Bark Wheat Ale, and Farmhand Ale.
