Where can I get live crab in San Francisco?
I've lived in the bay area for a few years off and on but now I'm finally living in the city of San Francisco. Where can I get live (cheap) crab in SF? I've gotten crab from Ranch 99 in Richmond in the past and my sister was able to get some off the boats somewhere in the East Bay but I don't know where. I don't mind buying from the East Bay, but I'd be a lot happier if I could find a place that didn't involve crossing a bridge. Now that the negotiations are done, I'm dying for fresh crab! Can you help me out?
Thanks for the responses but I guess I needed to clarify my original question. I wasn't looking for crab TODAY, I know the fishermen just went out. I'm just trying to figure out where in SF I can try calling this or next weekend for prices and availability. =) Thanks to DavidT who understood my poorly worded question.
