Because nothing says "affordable furniture" like a boiled freshwater lobster, Ikea in Red Hook hosts an all-you-can-eat crayfish buffet every summer. This Friday, August 19, the Red Hook superstore will close its restaurant early at 2:30pm and dedicate its kitchen staff entirely to serving up the spiny delicacy. Customers can choose from one of three seatings: 4pm to 6pm, 6:30pm to 8:30pm, or 9pm to 11pm. It's $9.99 a person ($2.49 for kids under twelve) and tickets reportedly go fast, so if you're interested, get yours at the Ikea restaurant ASAP.
