Crabs and "Old Dogs" - Lesson 1

Have always enjoyed the taste of crab meat but thought it was a lot of work to get to it. Was told recently that was because I did not know what I was doing (Readily agreed with that assesment). That the Smacking, Whacking and Cracking of the shell was half the fun of eating crabs.

That being the case. I (the "Old Dog" part of the ride title) am willing to learn a "New Trick". Just need someone to teach it to me.

Lets head down to North East, MD to Woody's Crab House where the teaching can start. Have been here before and enjoyed the Crabcake sandwich (No work involved) and know that they have steamed Crabs on the menu.

Lets meet at the Bakery at 9:45AM. Planning on leaving at 10:30AM for what should be around a little more than a 2 hour ride including a quickie pit stop. So if you plan on coming along (If for no other reason than to watch me make a fool of myself). Please be on time and ready to go with a full tank of gas

Hope you can make it and show me what I've been missing all these years

The Corner Bakery is in the same building as Maggiano's Restaurant (which shows on Google Maps if you zoom in enough). It is behind the Crate and Barrel Store which is located on the corner of North Gulph Road and Mall Blvd.

Also, if you plan on bring a passenger. Please do not use the "plus one" option when you rsvp as meetup counts that as you bringing a second rider with you

By Law. You and your passenger must wear a Helmet in MD

    A quick note of thanks to all who came along for my first lesson in the proper way to open a crab. The "all" who included some new faces Chris & Chris, Marilyn & Tom, Lawrence and Michael. Also some of the usual suspects; Holly, Michael, Rich (Thanks for helping to keep the group together) Jules, Bob (Don't see the man for two years. Shows for my last 2 rides. Very Cool) and last but certainly not least Lynda for showing me the simple tricks it takes to get started learning how to eat them the right way

    Nice roads. Good weather, Excellent food. Great people to enjoy it with
