We live in a society where the norm is not “the norm.” These are trying and unprecedented times where we are forced to isolate and do not have the accessibility to social interaction that we had grown accustomed to. Social interaction is very important for the human psyche. It is proven that conversation, company, and community help us stay in a positive frame of mind. It is this contact that gives us something to live for. In these uncertain times, it is very important to make the most of every opportunity that presents itself to get together and celebrate.
To celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, graduations or promotions, is not a common place activity anymore. It is the sporadic nature of our ability to get together with others that makes it that much more important to treasure the opportunities that we are afforded. The Crab Shack in Crofton and Edgewater is this perfect place to make new memories with the people that we cherish. The Crab Shack is prepared to meet all of your gathering needs with precision, enthusiasm, and most importantly, safety.
There is no better meal to gather over than that of freshly steamed Chesapeake Blue Crabs. Crabs have always been a social food; the crab feast a staple of any true Maryland summer. Picking a crab is a process and everyone has their own. There are those that eat every piece of meat as soon as it touches their fingertips, and those that collect the meat as they go, biding their time, and waiting with bated breath for their pile of meat to reach just the right amount to enjoy all at once.
Regardless of your preferred method for eating crabs, the process provides quality time to sit with your loved ones and catch up on events and stories that you may have missed during quarantine. It may not be summer, but The Crab Shack in Crofton and Edgewater has the stock and the space for you to enjoy your feast, and the family-oriented management and staff know that it is not just the crabs that makes the feast. It wouldn’t be a crab feast without the smiles, the laughter, and the side dishes.
It is the perfect time of year for fresh local oysters, which, along with some fresh hush puppies and Boardwalk Style Fries, complete with Old Bay and Malt Vinegar, make for the perfect accents to your long overdue feast with family and friends.
