Fresh Crabs coming to Crisfield!

“No man is lonely eating spaghetti; it requires so much attention.”  ~ Christopher Morley 

Obviously Morley never ate crabs.

Hungry for the taste of fresh crabs? Crabbers will be putting their pots in the water on April 1, so start planning your trip to Crisfield now. It's never too early to plan for what must be the most famous all-you-can-eat and drink event (that includes beer)  in the entire state, perhaps the county.  And who else is going to offer you the best of the bay?

The J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake will take place on July 21, 2010. The menu is as follows:

Steamed crabs
Steamed clams
Raw bar
Fresh fish
Onion rings
French fries
Corn on the cob

Only $45.00, and you can eat from 12:30 until 4:30.  Call the Crisfield Area Chamber of Commerce at 410.968.2500 for advance tickets and save $5.00. Book early; the motels and B&B's fill up fast. That is no exaggeration. 

No time to get lonely when picking and eating crabs! And crab is so much better than spaghetti.

Let me move back, or forward in time, depending on how you read this post, and remind everyone that the 17th Soft Shell Spring Fair will be held on the city dock May 30, 2010. Enjoy fresh local seafood (the soft shell crabs are delicious), arts and craft, and live entertainment. Admission is free.

Please, please tell us that Crabby Crab is safe and well!! He's probably the only one in Crisfield who is not salivating.

Bagman: Crabby Crab is safe. His eyes are bigger from being in Vegas but he is just fine.

I thought that Pavlovian drooling effect only worked on dogs?

Suddenly I'm very hungry.

Wish I had that basket of crabs to dig into.
Hello, Patty. How is my old friend. I did not intend to infer that you are old. Just wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You are one of the genuine good girls.
Hope to visit again, soon.

Sounds like a wonderful event is planned. Wish I lived closer.
Hugs and smiles,

You can't put a basket of crabs down with drawing a crowd! July should be a fine time for crab picking in Crisfield!
