Three days later it's time for the annual SACC New York Cryafish Dinner dance at the New York Yacht Club. This event will set you back $275 but is sure to be a memory for the cold months to come. Register at www.saccny.org

If you'd rather enjoy your crayfish in a quieter way than the regular Swedish "Kräftskiva," Restaurant Aquavit celebrates Crayfish Festival between Aug. 17 and Sept. 11. Three-course lunch menu beginning with 1/2 lb of Swedish cooked crayfish followed by Swedish meatballs or Scandinavian Bouillabaise and dessert, $52 pp. www.aquavit.org

Further west and near Chicago? SACC Chicago with SACC Young Professionals have their party on Sept. 12 at the Sheridan Shore Yacht Club in Wilmette. $85 pp for members, $100 for non-members. There may be a few tickets left, call (312) 257-3002 or see www.sacc-chicago.org
