Crab Convert/ Bay Lady?

I've been an Obryckis fam most of my crab eating life but Imust admit I missed the neighborhood crab feel Baltimore used to have. On a recent crab eating stint I took some of the reccomends from the board and its links and had crabs at Gunnings in Brooklyn (very good -- friendly baltimore bar style service and charm) and Kellys (maybe my new favorite-- a great place a great bar and great crabs). Although I read the crabs lady's suggestions I can't count her as a real crab eater -- she turned her nose up at females and referred to the delicious mustard, fat, and organs of the crab as squishy stuff to be thrown away -- besides she pulls the legs off before diving into the body -- you never get the big lumps that way.
