Get those crackers ready, folks; stone crab season officially opens today. The meaty claws will be available from now through May 15.
You can stop drooling on your keyboard now.
The start of the season also means the haven for all things crabby, Joe's Stone Crab, reopens today for the 97th time. The restaurant opens at 5 p.m. sharp (lunch hours begin on October 20) and takes no reservations. A manager at Joe's told Charlie she expects a wait tonight, but eager customers arriving by 5 should be fine. She guaranteed that everyone who shows up will be seated by close.
