      I'm thinking about trying to get my husband to go for lunch today and see if it's open. I have a greatplace across the bridge in Jersey for you if you want good ones - they have blue claws from Cabo which are really sweet and great hushpuppies soft shells and crawfish too. BYOB Oh we like the crabs hot dipped and dirty. http;//www.crabeatery.com
