Rockville/College Park crabs

Summed up: I need tasty, good-sized, well-priced crabs in the Rockville/College Park area that I can buy in order to host my own crab feast.

I'm trying to host a crab feast with my friends but where should I buy crabs? It doesn't matter if they're cooked or alive, but as a recent college grad, I'm on a budget. However, as a former lover of Bmore, I need quality crabs. Plus, with recent gas prices, I'd rather not go too far away to get these tasty crabs.

Also, what are the best side dishes to go with crabs? I've got beer covered, though I don't know what else to serve besides crabs.

      Cameron's is our go-to as well and they have several locations throughout the area. As for side dishes, we do cole slaw, corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes along with saltines for the mustard/crab fat/tomalley. Some people also like melted butter and vinegar for dipping.
