What did the birthday boy, born and raised in Maryland, request? STEAMED CRABS.
We headed down to Canton Dockside since we think they have the best crabs within a few miles from us. If you are downtown - this is the place to go. While our crabs were steaming, we each ordered soup since I was about to eat the sugar packets on the table. I was starving.
Cup of Cream of Crab
Cup of Maryland Crab
Both soups had a ton of flavor and big chunks of crab. The crabs came and they were huge, so we were HAPPY.

Beer is a necessity while picking crabs. My girly beer of choice - Bud Light w/ Lime.After I was filled to the brim with crab meat - I started making a pile. The waitress came over and asked me if I wanted to come work in the back.
Here is a close-up to make you crab lovers drool. All that meat is going to be used to make a delicious appetizer for later tonight. Some friends are coming over for happy hour before we go out to celebrate the birth of my boyfriend.
When we got home, Oscar had a field day with my hands. He is a licker - it is his one downfall.
We needed something sweet after dinner. Please notice the cut on my thumb - a battle wound from all my crab picking.
Now I am not a big ice cream person, but I could eat this entire pint by myself. It is the best flavor they've got.
Oscar and Lucy wanted to wish Kevin a Happy Birthday!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!
Wait! Question Fun...
Have you ever had steamed crabs? If not, do you want to or does it gross you out?
