Live Blue Crabs and Weekend Specialties 5.21.15 May 20 2015 Posted in

The official start of summer is here and nothing says summer like blue crabs from the Chesapeake Bay.   We’ll have the first live #1 Jimmies of the season this Friday in anticipation of Memorial Day weekend.   For those of you not in the know, males are referred to as “Jimmies” and females are called “sooks.”  Jimmies are generally larger, meatier and more desirable for eating whole.  Number ones refer to the largest crabs out there but “large” is a bit of a shooting target.  Rest assured, number ones assure you the largest available.  Number twos are slightly smaller, and finally, number threes are usually a mix of un-graded, small crabs.  Usually all female.   Enough of the education though.  Stop on by, grab some crabs, old bay and let the good times roll!

Please note we will be open normal hours this weekend, but will be CLOSED in observance of Memorial Day on Monday May 25th

Now onto the good stuff …
