Lucky lobster

Check out this cool video showing a half orange, half brown lobster that was spared the pot. Apparently it's not that unheard of, though, since I found a couple stories about a similar find last year in Maine. The best part is that the stripe goes straight down the middle of this one's back.

Mmm... Speaking of, it's been awhile since I've eaten fresh lobster. Might be time to start up again soon. I've always wanted to have a backyard bash and ask Kevin Smith of Lobsta Bakes of Maine to come cook up a feast for me and my friends. It's not exactly cheap ($35 a lobster, then you can choose sides ala carte), but for all the cooking and cleanup he's doing, I think it's worth it.

I was disappointed that the Lobsta Bakes link doesn't seem to be working.

Hey, Anon,

Hmm... I just tried it and it seems to be working. Perhaps their server was down earlier today... Try it again and see if you have better luck.

I wonder who the first person was who pulled a lobster out of the ocean and said: Hmmmmm, looks tastie!!

I was a frequent patron when Bounty first started in Anderson Township and wondered what happened to Kevin and his wife when they sold the business. I used to see him with his cooking trailer in my neighborhood, but haven't for some time. I would love to see the Enquirer do an update about this worthy local food venture. Please tell me they're still here and inform other Cincinnatians of ways they can support this local culinary entrepreneur.

The lobsta parties are great and the $35 is all inclusive - corn potatoes, bread, mussels - all come with it!
