Stores where you can buy fresh crabs abound
, but if you don't want to cook them yourself, there are a few crab feeds in the coming weeks that might interest you.
Tomorrow evening (Tuesday) Starbelly
is hosting its annual crab feed. $99 gets you all the whole jumbo local crab you can eat, along with Dungeness crab chowder, Caesar salad, garlic bread, broccolini, spiced apple cobbler, and Oro en Paz Chardonnay. Seatings are available at 6 and 8; buy tickets on Sosh
All-you-can-eat crab can be yours for $50 at the Slow Food SF
-thrown dinner on Sunday, Dec. 7. The menu offers a few sides and dessert along with fresh, local crab, and though the wine isn't included (though it will be on hand from Sutton Cellars to purchase), the lower price tag makes up for it. Tickets available on Eventbrite.
On Sunday, Dec. 14, Imbibe
magazine is teaming up with newish Mission bar ABV
to create a boozy crab boil. Winter cocktails will be the focus along with a menu featuring plenty of Dungeness. Tickets are $65 and include all food, drink, and a copy of Imbibe
's new holiday cocktail book; tickets are available
on Brown Paper Tickets.
Dungeness crab season has been here for a couple weeks and if you haven't eaten some sweet crustacean by now, you're losing the right to call yourself a San Franciscan.
