Busha Clarke's famous 'Rude to Your Parents Rum Punch', chef Bryan HoSue's crab in black bean sauce and Rainforest Seafood's crab pasta, were among the mouth-watering favourites at Busha's Crabfest at Paradise Park, Westmoreland, on Saturday, May 28.

The event, which had taken a five-year hiatus, returned with a bang at the quaint property, where a large bonfire signalled its intention of burning the night away.

Busha promised crab cooked to perfection, rum served very plentiful (RSVP), music and a night of endless fun, and he delivered.

In fact, both the Appleton and Margaritaville bars became natural watering holes for the patrons who turned out in large numbers for the all-inclusive affair.

The impressive menu included boiled black and white crab, curried, garlic, Cajun and run down crab. Giving options to 'not so' serious crab eaters, Busha and his team of cooks offered escoveitch fish and curried chicken.

The delectable food was complemented by soup, rolls, and corn on the cob.

Renowned for his philanthropic efforts, proceeds from the event will go towards a number of Westmoreland charities. "Persons who want to make a direct contribution to the Savanna-la-Mar Hospital should make the cheques payable to "Friends of Savanna-la-Mar Hospital" at leave at the at the gate," encouraged Busha as guests ate crab to their hearts content.
