Studies continue to be demanding and dreaded finals loom in a few weeks, but normal law school student concerns were put on hold for a few magical hours on Saturday, Oct. 25 as the CUA Law community thronged to Crabfest 2014. 

The flawless autumnal weather was punctuated by a terrifically talented five member all-student band -- the Tortious Tones - which set up on the back lawn and spent three hours combing through an impressive song repertoire that included hits from the Beach Boys, among many other bands.
“We love playing together and really had a lot of fun. We all just really enjoy playing music,” said band member Christian Baron, CUA Law Class of 2016.
Two hundred and thirty one students pre-registered for the annual tradition, and most showed up, taking their seat at a picnic table and spending a lazy afternoon chatting with friends, playing games on the grass, and feasting on fine Maryland crab.
As in past years, a portion of the ticket sale proceeds will go directly to St. Ann's Center for Children, Youth, and Families, located near the law school in the Brookland section of Washington, D.C.
The food, music, weather, and carefree aura provided a welcome break from a busy semester, and students eagerly anticipate their Crabfest every year.
