My lobstermen friends have had a weird summer. The weather has been awesome, the catch is pretty good, but everything is more expensive, such as fuel, bait, repairs, etc, and the price of lobster this summer is historically low. So, every year, Maine Lobster Week honors the hard-working lobstermen. (See below post to see what else they are up against).
Maine Lobster Week is a statewide lobster celebration starting September 19 and concluding on National Lobster Day, September 25. Find lobster shacks, food trucks, and fine dining with everything from lobster rolls to lobster Bloody Mary's, to decadent three-course menus, at participating dining locations from Kennebunkport to Bar Harbor. Did you know? Locally if you live near a Hannaford Supermarkets, you can buy lobster and they can steam it for you in 15 minutes to take home. Or if you're out of state, these fine places ship lobster to your house.
I try to do something every year for Maine Lobster Week. This year, I'll be doing an informal chat and book-signing about the film and the book at the two locations above.
