Summer crayfish festival at IKEA stores Aug. 16: Wear a funny hat

Every summer, I regret the loss of the Swedish restaurant Gustaf Anders in Costa Mesa and its annual crayfish festival. Not to mention the Princess cake draped in pale green marzipan. 

It won’t be the same, but here’s the thing: It’s just $9.99 per person. Kids 12 and under get in for $2.49. What is it? IKEA's kräftskiva -- an all-you-can-eat Swedish crayfish festival on Friday, Aug. 16.

What’s on the menu? Tossed green salad, cucumber salad, hard-boiled eggs with shrimp, shell-on prawns with cocktail sauce, Najad salmon with horseradish...
