You guys Dungeness crab season is here and everyone is losing their collective mind. There are a bunch of restaurants around the Bay Area selling whole or half crabs — Eater has a great map of all of  'em, and we cannot recommend enough the cold steamed crab at Swan Oyster Depot and the wood-roasted crab at Camino in Oakland. Only thing is, eating whole crabs in restaurants can get a little pricey. Here are a few deals to help set the tone for the rest of your crustacean-eating season.

Tonight and tomorrow only, the two locations of  Woodhouse Fish Co. are offering whole steamed crab for $19, including drawn butter, a couple steamed potatoes and garlicky greens. The crabs are a wee bit waterlogged, but for a deal like this, it's more than worth it. And they have Anchor Steam on draft, obviously.

Then, on Sunday, Nov. 23 and Nov. 30, there will be a bottomless crab feed at The Hall, the newish market hall at Sixth and Mission. $65 will get you all the steamed crab you can eat along with garlic noodles, seasonal veggies, and crusty sourdough. Wash it all down with bottomless mimosas, micheladas, and shandies. Buy tickets in advance at the bar or on Sosh for a $5 fee.

Let us know if you hear of any more deals. Enjoy your feasting!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
