I heard from a girlfriend that she had a great experience with the live crabs she bought from C&S Fish. After attending my gathering, where her boyfriend learned how to cook, clean and crack them from MarkB, they decided to tackle live crabs for the first time for their own dinner party for 11 people. They drove up from Tiburon to the arranged pick up point of the South Petaluma exit off 101. They bought 6 crabs for $3.50/lb. just before Christmas. Novices at this, they didn't think to bring a container for the crab, and Cathy was kind enough to give them her cooler packed with ice that she said she'd picked up at a second hand store for three bucks. Now that they've invested in a couple big cooking pots, I doubt they'll settle for anything less than live-cooked again. (g)
