Fresh or live snails for escargot?

Hi all,

We ate the best escargot ever at this restaurant in Boston: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...

They were tasty and big, ~1" long and the width of my index finger, and you got 6 for $9.50.

I've been wanting to make this dish at home for a while, but I read mixed reviews about the canned variety. I learned that Paris Grocery on Western Ave carries frozen precooked ones in garlic butter at 12 for $13: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.ph...

I know how and what you need to do to purge, gut, clean, and cook them, so I'm not put off by the squeamish factor. The thing is, can I get them locally?

Thanks!
