      Feb. 7th is just three weeks away!! Isn't that a little soon to get a group of this large a size together? And OC had a point. If it happened in Feb. or early Mar., a snow date would almost certainly need to be considered. You know what it's like around here at the least little bit of snow!

      That being said, Feb 7th is out for me. But don't let that stop anybody from getting together. We will never find a date that fits EVERYbody....

        I'm available anytime except first and last weeks in March.

        How does April 17th work? Not that anyone will have any money left after the 15th.

            April 17th works for me, signman. And I plan on having Uncle Sam give me back some of my hard earned cash they have been using all year, so hopefully I have a little windfall for eating the crabby cakes. Perhaps you should start a separate thread getting yays or nays for the great crabcake outing?

              By my count, that's meowzart, signman, Argent and I95 all specifically conveying their collective availability for:

              Saturday, April 17, 2004.



              What about: wanderingjew, chezkatie, Rusty246, Rhodes, ocdreamr, CheeseWit and the others whom have generally responded positively to this thread. And what about you other mid-Atlantic Road Fooders whom we haven't yet heard from.

              For the love of God, we simply cannot have the SoCal Road Fooders do this first! The honor of our entire crab-eating region is at stake, people!!

              So, how about a crabcake lunch two-days-post-tax-day and exactly where?

                Anyone been here? www.jerrysseafood.com


                Jerry's is one of my favorite seafood places. Everyting that I have had there has been outstanding, including the crab bisque, which is topped with lump crab, and Maryland crab soup. Check out this review. http://www.washingtonian.com/dining/Profiles/jerrysseafoo.html
                Yes, it is expensive, but in my experience, quality seafood is not cheap. Which leads to my reservation about the proposed crab cake tour: in theory, it sounds great, but its going to be pretty pricey (pricy?), not to mention time-consuming and belt-busting. I would favor meeting at one restaurant.

                    Yes, but mathematically they'll already be out of contention.

                      Clothier- stuck in the crab cake deprived great state of Michigan and feeling crabby about it.

                      Wow, I feel so sorry for your whining state, that I might actually take up a collection at this gathering of crabcake eaters and send you a REAL crabcake!

                          rbpalmer might have a point. At each place we've mentioned, the crab cakes are substantial. Perhaps it would make more sense to just hit one place -- and having said that, my vote would be for Faidleys in Lexington Market in downtown Baltimore. Their CC is not as large as the other places. They also have a raw bar. There are lots of other Roadfood worthy stalls in the market, including, but not limited to, a killer shrimp salad sandwich at Mary Mervis, fried chicken gizzards at numerous stands, fresh roasted peanuts at Konstant, and Berger's chocolate topped cookies.

                          I'm going to set up a new thread for this (m)eating. Looks like we are shooting for Saturday, April 17.

                          Wandering Jew, No the Orioles are in Toronto on the 17th.

                                Went to Casey's for lunch today. We were VERY pleased. And so close!!!

                                Anyway, it is a takeaway lunch place and fishmonger. I asked about outdoor seating when it gets warmer, but they said no, they don't. But they HAVE thought about it. The first thing when we walked in, we were offered a sample of their soup that day--Maryland Crab. Well that was a smart thing for them to do, because we ended up getting some. Hubby and I shared a Captain Dave's platter. It came with a 6 oz. crabcake and our choice of two seafood items. We chose the fried fish and the clam strips. The platters also included fries and slaw.

                                The crabcake was the best thing of the trio. I think it was bigger than the advertised 6 oz. It was delish, but didn't have that tang I have come to love with Angelina's. The fish was a serious filet and wasn't battered but generously crumbed with Panko breadcrumbs and fried crisp. It was crunchy good, but I think it was a little over done...it could have been taken out of the fryer before it was. I will give them another shot on the fish fillet. The clam strips were clam strips. Nothing extraordinary. Slaw was just cool crisp cabbage and easy on the mayo. Salt & pepper and thats it. Quite good. The fries were tasty but did not travel well...they were limp and soggy by the time we got them home (about a 5 mile drive).

                                The star of the show was definitely the soup. Great tomato broth, lots of crab, red skin potatoes, peas, green beans, corn, onion, carrots. It had a little bit of a bite to it, so I am sure ther was some pepper sauce added. It was wonderful. We had stopped at our favorite bakery right before going to Casey's so we had beautiful bread in which to sop up every delightful bite. I would go there again for the soup, no problem.

                                We now have a menu at home and one for the car for pick-ups on the way home from work. Thank you Rusty for bringing this place to our attention!! My stomach thanks you, too!

                                  Went to Outback Steakhouse last week and they now have crab cakes on the menu as an appetizer (2 cakes) or you can get one as a side with your meal. Tried one as a side and it was good, but not like the original thing from Maryland.
