Live King Crab in the Bay Area?

So it sounds like King Crab season kicked off a few weeks back in Vancouver, with prices per pound dipping to $12 in markets and around $20 at restaurants.

I recall that in the Bay Area, we start seeing (Alaskan, not Russian) King Crab a little later than they do up in Vancouver. Have they started appearing here yet at the usual suspects (Koi, Zen, Asian Pearl, etc.) and at what price points are we talking about? (they're teasing about it but no price points given)

It's probably going to be a little higher this year because the catch was slashed a bit but hopefully nothing north of $25 - $30 a pound...
