Emergency: Where Can John Buy Crabs?

Emergency!  Where can John find crabs -- other than Franks Seafood in Jessup, which is apparently sold out for Sunday?

John left a comment on this week's Franks post, and he needs a place to buy a half bushel of hardshells for Sunday.

We usually go to Sea King on Plum Tree, just off 40. Its the carry out store for Crab Shanty located just across the street.

Thanks for all the ideas! VK - I think you mean Captain Dick's, and I'm now planning on going there is Frank's is out. I got crabs from Captain Dick's years ago, so I had forgotten about them. Thanks again!

Just reserved carbs from Frand for today. They have med-large mix for $30 doz.

Crab update - I ended up traveling to Arbutus to get crabs from Capt. Dick's, and it was well worth the drive. The crabs were well spiced and full of meat. Everyone thought they blew Frank's crabs away and were amongst the best they've had in years. I'll be heading back there soon.

John / Linda / VK / LEASOL / Everyone -- A paragraph about your favorite crab place, two other suggestions, and one cell phone photo. That's all you need to send me a "trolling" post!!!
