38th Annual LSU Alumni Dallas Crawfish Boil

2018 CRAWFISH BOIL - LSU Alumni Dallas ChapterFor 38 years, members of the LSU Alumni Association Dallas Chapter have gathered for our annual crawfish boil, in typical Louisiana style. Family crawfish boils are something of a hallowed tradition in Louisiana. Our alumni and friends know there is no better way to celebrate our LSU family than to get together for some music, games, and good eatin’. Our crawfish boil is a party with a purpose!

The annual crawfish boil is the biggest fundraiser for the Dallas Alumni Chapter, and the money raised supports our scholarship program. Each year, the Dallas chapter awards 4 four-year scholarships to high school seniors from the Dallas area who plan to attend our beloved university.

Your attendance at the crawfish boil helps us continue the LSU Tiger tradition in the Dallas area! Come help us support the future of LSU and our Texas Tigers, and get you some finger lickin’ good food while you’re at it! Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler!

THE VENUE | LAVA CANTINA – THE COLONY, TX

Loading...

Ian Vaughn has worked in the restaurant industry his entire career and has always held a strong commitment to quality and service; however, due to his father’s influences, music has been a passion that they both have shared. Steve Vaughn has been in the music business for over 40 years and has always had a passion for great tunes, most notably rock n’ roll. Like many career musicians, Steve held a day job to support and raise his family for over thirty years.

As Steve was approaching retirement, he began to think about what the “post career” chapter in his life might look like. Steve and Ian put their heads together on the possibilities and it became obvious that the next phase should be a fun one that offers a combination of all the things they both love – great food, family, people, and music. As the creative juices flowed through countless brainstorming sessions, the Lava Cantina brand was born.

Steve and Ian are more than just a father and son duo, they are best friends. With a visit to Lava Cantina, you will see their personalities on display everywhere you look – from the Live Music that has played such a critical role in Steve’s life to the autographed memorabilia and rock n roll décor that Ian has obsessed with throughout his adult years. This brand is a production of their passions, and we hope you enjoy the food, the service and the experience.
