    We walked down earlier and checked out the event. It was mostly just a fundraiser, but they were giving out samples. There was lionfish ceviche and grilled lionfish. Both were very good. I hope to find somewhere serving it for dinner one night, maybe Hadicurari.

    We've always wanted to attend the lion fish festival. We've missed it twice by a coupe of days and one year we tried it was sold out. We had it filleted and grilled at the Casibari Cafe a couple of years ago and it was very good. We haven't seen it on the menu there lately though.

    Walt, you may want to check Nos Clubhouse upstairs too. I think they have it sometimes.

    glad they're taking the steps needed to keep the population down...I know in the keys they do the same thing every year (trophies for largest..etc and then samples for everyone to try)
    would love to see it one the menu at the local restaurants since I am sure they catch/kill them whenever possible
