On February 13, 2010, 17 crustacean-hungry humans descended on 60 pounds of crab. Bliss and contentment ensued.
This year's crab came from the local Farmers' Market, courtesy of Santa Rosa Seafood. At 9 a.m. these crab were scrabbling around vigorously in their holding tanks. At 9:30 they were cooked to perfection, and by 10:30 the crab-cleaning began.
The discarded crab backs pile up in a bowl in the sink.
The guests begin to arrive bearing wine, smiles and side dishes.
