The Holding Pen, the bar on the back porch of Hog & Hominy, kicks off its second season Sunday, March 16th, with a crawfish boil.

Sunday's event will unveil the Holding Pen's new theme. Last year's theme of dive bar is gone, and in its place is a raw bar theme.

And with the new theme comes a completely new menu. That means the beloved John T. Edge burger is no more. Gone, too, are the Frito pies and boiled peanuts.

According to Hog & Hominy's manager Matt Farmer, "The menu will feature a variety of different fresh seafood options including but not limited to razor clam ceviche, peel 'em & eat 'em shrimp, oysters, crudo, and multi-tier seafood towers."

As for Sunday's event, the fun begins at 2 p.m. and will last until 5 p.m. when the raw bar will be unveiled. There will be all-you-can-eat crawfish and all-you-can-drink local beer for $15 ($10 for service industry), plus cornhole and bocce ball tournaments. A Selection Sunday watch party follows.

Regular hours for the Holding Pen's raw bar are 5 p.m. to midnight, every day but Sunday.
