Live King Crab - Little Saigon: When, Where, How Much?

My birthday is in November and I really want live king crab for my dinner. Is that the right time of year? I had heard cold months are when the restaurants have live crab.
I'm close to Little Saigon. Any recommendations? I've heard of places in Irvine but that crab runs around $30/lb and that the crabs are 5-7 pounds.
Does that sound right? Which is better? Little Saigon or Irvine?
Any help appreciated!
