Tag Archives: Crabfest


My group of friends including me are perennial meat and fish eaters and every now and then we announce what we call crab fest.  Its like a secret call, a call comes on your phone, all it is said is today is crab fest or crabbies are here, that’s all. You are not given the choice you are to be there. Not that i ever uttered no for it. For the uninitiated its when a couple of folks volunteer to cook crabs for the whole junta which is savored by all of us like me in the Sahara finding and oasis.

The latest of this event occurred yesterday, i was sick ok, getting back to being healthy but since Thursday i had fever i thought i would abstain from eating crabs (means eating just one or maybe 2). Well went there quite late, rosh did not make, and that is a long story why.

Rules of Crab-Fest

Beer, Crabs make an awesome combination, Also the rule says you cannot at any time use any mechanical instrument other than your own teeth or some else’s teeth to break down the crab. It is against crab fest policy to break it down with an hammer.

A crab fang must be respected for it juiciness and meat and must and only must be broken down by your bare teeth. You could well ask someone to break it down for you but then if he takes a bite off the meat, sorry no complaints. Also you cannot waste any part of the crab, it must be eaten fully, not doing so could get you no more crabs in the future.

Oh it was an awesome sight, i was sick (mentioned again for empathy sake) but oh how i wish i could eat more, not that any thing would go waste, it simple did not.
