Making another trip to boston.. i could really use some advice.

Im making a trip to your city by plane on November 2nd and i could really use some advice.. I was wondering what the best way was to get lobsters back home in baltimore... Fed ex and ups seem really expensive to overnight the package.. i will be returning home on November 5th.. I have been reading that lobster at restaurants are marked up for visitors such as myself, and the best way to get them are at seafood markets.. Ill be at the harbor side hotel, so if there is any advice anyone could give i would appreciate it greatly. Thank you, thank you.

      I believe you can order right off the James Hook website

    2. Give James Hook a call and ask how much it would cost for packed lobsters. I'd guess you'll pay about $10/lb plus some nominal packing cost. Their website only has info for shipped lobsters.

      You might also want to check the prices in your local supermarkets in Baltimore. I think my parents just bought lobsters for ~$8/lb in Florida!

          I was going to add that you should be able to get Hook to pack them in ice, and you can check them at the airport.

        2. Thank you for the replies.. Ill definitely check this out!
