I SPY: Feeling Crabby

Jun 24, 2015

Feeling crabby?  It's summer, cheer up!  If a crab boil is on your summer check list of things to do then grab friends, and head to Back Forty where it's all you can eat for 2 hours, at newspaper covered communal tables.  You make a mess and they clean up.  NICE.

Back forty has been doing annual crab boils through out summers for years now, and they're so known for this event that they tend to sell out.  You know those city people don't have back yards so consider this a treat!  Crab boils are only Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 8:30pm.  Tickets go on sale online the Wednesday before at 10am.  So click here in advance to reserve a spot.

First up they serve you with warm corn bread.  YUM.



Then they throw a bucket of crab onto your table, together with butter loaded boiled new potatoes and string beans.  We had 3 rounds!!!  Coz yeah we hated it!  NOT.



Dessert was Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler, which I'm sorry I didn't take a photo of.  But I'm not a fan of cobbler so was not into it.  However, I was told it was good!  My dessert was licking my fingers!  Evidence of getting down and dirty.  HA.



P.S.  You will make a mess, no matter how hard you try not to.  Guts and sauce will splash on you, so wear something that can easily be thrown in the wash, because they didn't provide bibs.  Or maybe they do but you have to ask?  But who wants to do that and look like a LOOSER.  Wash cloths are provided at end to clean your hands…but I needed more then a wash cloth!  A sink by the table would've been nice.  ENJOY.
