Each seafood boil comes with corn, potatoes and lots of fun!

Give Reason to Celebrate

Speaking of fun, this has been a difficult time for everyone. There are many moments that we simply need to step back and remind ourselves to breathe. To smile. To have hope. In doing so, we also need to remember to celebrate our special moments no matter how big or how small they may seem. Even if you can’t gather in huge, rowdy crowds to revel in joy, there are still some creative ways to share smiles and make memories. We all just have to get a little more creative as we figure out ways to celebrate togetherness – apart.

Many of us have used Zoom over the last few months for meetings or school. For those who aren’t familiar with it, it’s similar to Skype. You can get on your computer or device (such as your cellphone) and see and talk to multiple people at one time. Since it’s difficult to gather and eat in a restaurant at the moment, opt for dinner with friends via Zoom. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Steps for a Successful Zoom Dinner

  1. If you haven’t tried Zoom yet, download it and practice using it.
  2. Create a guest list. Keeping it at 10 or under makes it a little easier to balance conversations, but Zoom can host more folks if you wish.
  3. Determine a time for your online lunch or dinner.
  4. Send invites with a link to Zoom. Encourage each guest to briefly give Zoom a test ride before the actual meal. That way, you can save time on logistics once the Zoom dinner begins and just dig right into the fun!
  5. Order your meals online. You could actually coordinate orders together or let everyone choose their own restaurant.
  6. Send a reminder for guests to log into your Zoom dinner. Add a few helpful guidelines such as making sure that your video and sound are on. If you wish, you can also choose a host to help negotiate conversation if needed.

Zoom also has some really fun features. For instance, you can select a fun background. We think a festive coastal scene would be perfect to go with one of our seafood boils!

Outdoor Picnic or Tailgate Tasting

Now that the weather is getting nice, eating outdoors in small gatherings (check with your local area for current rules) while maintaining proper social distancing is fun. While we don’t always think about a picnic involving a fresh seafood meal, why not? Of course, we still have plenty of menu options if you’re still in the mood for a different dish. Plus, we do all the work for you so that you can simply grab a blanket, your food to-go and have fun. Find an open field, park, stream or even a large parking lot where you can safely tailgate and dig in!

Neighborhood Lawn Block Party

Remember the days when neighborhoods would shut down streets and gather families to enjoy festive food and friendship? Well, you could try a similar idea except no streets are closed and everyone sticks to their own yards. Organize a time for all your neighbors to plan a dinner on their lawn. Perhaps, you have some musicians who’d be willing to play a little music from a safe distance. Or, you could have each neighbor do a little show of their talents from each yard to entertain everyone during the meal. A seafood boil from Crazy Crab is a perfect dinner to celebrate while you enjoy a little spread-out socializing with neighbors.

For the last two ideas, we do want to reiterate that it’s very important to follow current social distancing rules. We don’t want to suggest any activity that could put someone in danger and advise everyone to use their wisest judgement. Our goal is to encourage safe fun because we all have things to celebrate. Birthdays, grades, graduations…it’s more important than ever to make an effort to celebrate these milestones together.

A Brief Lesson in Crab-Leg Eating

If you’re still in the mood for seafood or crab legs, we’d like to dive in with some tips. Eating crab legs is an art in itself. So, let’s go through a few critical questions that help you get the most out of crab season!

How do you eat crab legs?

This question makes us smile a bit. Not naming names, but, we’ve had a few customers end up with crab pieces flying through the air as they attempt to perfect the art of snapping open a crab leg. After all, it can be a complicated process. When you break a crab leg to fully reach those tasty tidbits, the motion may send a few morsels soaring into the air and possibly your hair, your dining companion’s plate or other strange places that you don’t realize until you get home and change clothes. Heck, if you’re not covered in a little garlic butter or savory memories of your meal, you may not have done it right! If you’d rather simply eat your food rather than wear it, here are a few tips.

  1. Be patient! If you’re new at digging into crab legs at a seafood restaurant, you may have a mishap or two. Keep in mind, that’s half the fun!
  2. Get Crackin’. Pick up a crab leg in your least dominant hand. For instance, if you write with your right hand, use you LEFT hand to pick up the crab leg. Then, pick up your cracking tool with your dominant hand. Next, turn the crab leg sideways and fit it into the cracking tool. Squeeze!
  3. Go Fishin’! Now that the leg is cracked, dig in with your long-stemmed fork to fish out the delicious morsels. If you’re having trouble reaching all the meat, twist the legs back and forth to further crack the shell. You don’t want to leave any of those tasty tidbits uncaught!

If that still seems a little confusing, here’s a crab crackin’ video to get you started!

Who has good crab legs near me?

Fortunately, you don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy crab season and some of the freshest seafood available.  The founders of Crazy Crab spent 15 years searching for the best seafood dishes throughout the southeast. They traveled and tasted each dish from Louisiana and up along the coastal southeast all the way to North Carolina. While they enjoyed specialties such as low-country boils, gumbo, jambalaya and Cajun classics, they also got the chance to sample all sorts of shellfish. Now, they bring those fresh shellfish and tasty crabs directly to you with their unique twist on these delights from the coast.

Better yet, we present these delights in a unique nautical atmosphere. Essentially, we brought the beach right into the Triad. Therefore, you don’t have to drive all the way to the coast to find the best crab restaurants near me when you’re craving seafood. We hope our restaurant is an atmosphere you get to enjoy in person soon!

Until then, we welcome your online orders and look forward to serving you!

To begin your order, choose online ordering for the Crazy Crab Seafood & Grill nearest you:

Then, select carryout or delivery. Keep in mind, we have curbside pickup. If you select that option, be sure to add the make, model and color of your car. Plus, we’ll need your mobile phone number. Be sure to also bring a picture ID and the credit card used to purchase your order.

For your convenience, you can also schedule a pick-up or delivery rather than having it prepared right away. Therefore, if you’re planning a social distancing party, that’s one more thing to check off on your checklist.
