for whatever reason, I have a craving and it needs to be satisfied. Anyone know where I can buy live blue crabs? want to steam and dig into some at home.

      Was just there Saturday and they had them. Live and kicking, both hardshell and soft.

      i have seen them at Reliable market in Union Sq and Super88. I would call them before I go, in case they may run out of it.
