The Boiling Crab + karaoke
We had four Boiling Crab newbies: myself, Tiffany, Rani, and Connie.
This had to be rectified!
And it was good! After the standard hour wait, of course, as every Boiling Crab in existence always seems to be insanely popular. We loaded up on crawfish, dungeness crab, shrimp, clams, and calamari, with three different kinds of seasoning. Add in corn to pretend you're being healthy (and the corn is cooked in the same seasonings-- oh so good!).
It was also very messy. They cover the tables with waxed paper, give you a roll of paper towels, and a bib. You need 'em all.
Especially with the crawfish, as Virgil amply demonstrated, 3lb later...
'bout the only thing wrong with this place is that it has only two small bathrooms and no separate outside sinks to wash your hands. I think a half-dozen hand-washings later, the next day I could still smell the cajun and garlic seasoning under my fingernails.
We wandered over to Cafe Brass Monkey later for karaoke. Suffered through their awful mixed drinks and waited two hours for our turns to come up. Virgil did Come Together (Beatles), Tiffany sang Need You Now (Lady Antebellum), and I extremely un-gracefully butched Vanilla Twighlight (Owl City). As awful as the drinks are, the crowd inside definitely enjoys their karaoke!
