Have you ever met a person who doesn’t like crab? I’ve met people who don’t like lobsters (I forget who, maybe it was a chef or a boy or both) but I haven’t met a person who is like, “You know what isn’t delicious? Crab.” Well, I suppose people who keep kosher and have shellfish allergies don’t like crab, but you get the picture.
When I was home in May, I received an e-mail from the awesome crew at SF Crabbing Crew asking if I would like to come crabbing one afternoon. Uh, yes please!
So long story short, two guys had been taking their friends out crabbing for a few years then realized they had a pretty solid business model in place – bring lots of snacks and drinks, post up on a wharf overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, throw some crabbing cages out, cook said crabs and repeat. I know a lot about being a good hostess and good customer service and I’m going to say they have it down – making sure everyone is happy, refilling drinks – even catering to their guests who are vegan and don’t eat crabs but want to come hang out. And all of this is only $40 for 3-4 hours!
If you’re a local or just visiting SF, this is a great way to spend the afternoon. You get a little buzz going, eat seriously amazing crab, watch seals swim by and have tourists take photos of you holding crabs. It’s just like being back in Asia!
I’m going to let the photos tell the story. If you have any questions, be sure to visit their website or leave me a question in the comments.

Have you ever been crabbing? How cute is my mermaid hat? What do you want to do if you visit SF?
