Here in South Texas we like shrimp and lots of it – especially when it’s all you can eat!  At our onsite Restaurant 361, we like to do All You Can Eat Shrimp Night every Wednesday because – let’s be honest – with shrimp it’s hard to get your fill off just one plate! If you’re crazy about shrimp as much as we are then you won’t want to miss the 67th Annual Aransas Pass Shrimporee, the largest shrimp festival in Texas happening right here in the coastal bend.  The scrumptious little crustacean not tickle your fancy? Fret not, the festival features two stages for live music sporting a line up including acts such as Kevin Fowler, Rotel & the Hot Tomatoes, Jay Perez, Siggno, Clarissa Serna and Jimmy Gonzales Y Grupo Mazz as well as dancing, carnival rides, culinary events, a parade, a Miss Shrimporee pageant and more to keep the whole family entertained!
