McCabe Pub's Crawfish Boil Benefits Charity Close to Home

Posted By on Wed, Apr 9, 2014 at 7:40 AM

McCabe Pub in Sylvan Park is a real family-oriented spot, with visitors welcomed warmly at the bar, providing there's room. I've always enjoyed the cozy vibe of McCabe, so it's no surprise that when co-owner Stefanie Dean Brown was diagnosed with lymphangioleiomyomatosis, the whole community came together to help her out.

The disorder, which we can mercifully shorten to LAM, is a rare progressive disease of the lungs that almost exclusively strikes women. To help fund research into a cure, McCabe will turn its parking lot into a huge crawfish boil on Saturday, April 19, from 3 to 8 p.m. Your $30 entry fee entitles you to all-you-can-eat mud bugs, three drink tickets (and a cash bar after that) plus live music and other entertainment. All proceeds will benefit the LAM Foundation.

“Many of our guests at McCabe Pub are longtime regulars, and they feel more like family than customers,” said Katie Dean, co-owner and Stefanie’s sister. “They know about Stefanie’s condition and have asked how they can help, so we started this annual fundraiser last year for the LAM Foundation to help find a cure for this disease.”

Last year’s inaugural boil raised more than $15,000 for the LAM Foundation. Tickets are available at, and will also be available at the door on event day, cash or check only.
