Got Crabs?
Seriously - cause I need some.

I've called a half dozen crab houses today to order a bushel of crabs for our family reunion on Saturday, and thanks to two things: (1) the Fourth of July, and (2) the storms in Texas, most places won't take orders or give pricing until at least Thursday, once the Fourth frenzy is over and they see what the shipments this week from the Gulf look like.

Apparently, the Chesapeake isn't up to full speed production yet, although I had no problem ordering some soft shells for Friday night, since those actually are in season now and reasonably plentiful.

Prices were all over the place for #1 Jimmy's. I found some which sound deceptively small for $175 a bushel, up to $245 - $260 a bushel. We shall see.......

    There are lots of crabs in Pigtown. They are really really really tiny though, but they are in season all year long.

    I used to see asian guys crabbing there every morning when I worked in Linthicum. There's a little something to think about the next time you order Crab Rangoon.

    Too bad I'm late for the post but there are 2 places if you end up short of crabs again.

    Northern Parkway -Waaay up on Northern Parkway there's a truck that sells lots of crabs just shy of Old Harford Road.

    Dorsey Road. Hang a right off of 97 and there is a crab pilgrim with fair prices. And, if he is not there there is Arundel Golf just a bit further up. Bar none, the best value for a driving range anywhere. 13 bucks gets you a 160 balls to whack into the next zip code. To this day I go out of the way since their range balls hit as true as distance balls. Putting green, chipping green and a good pro shop to boot. The best way to waste a Sunday and earn a backache.
