Lobstermania is Friday (August 10th)!!
The following will be your guide on how to survive the Mania, please be sure to read all of the information below to help ensure a speedy process:
First, Live Maine Lobster will be sold by in increments of 2, 5 and 10!
Sizes will range between
1 and 1 1/4 pounders.
We will have boxes to pack you up or you can bring a cooler. Just remember, these animals are used to much colder weather than our Texas heat! Try to get them in a refrigerated area as soon as possible.
Our hours for selling
lobsters will be as follows or until we are sold out:
Friday August 10th: 9:00- OUT
THE GOAL IS FOR US TO SELL OUT SO KEEP THIS IN MIND!!!
Some customers will start lining up as early as 5 or 6 in the morning so get here early!!
We will be bringing in 10,000 Live Lobsters.
This is strictly a first come, first serve operation to ensure everyone gets in and out as quickly as possible
. While we would love to be able to hold product for those who can't come in till late, we simply do not have the room or the man power to keep track of 10,000 lobsters!
If lobster isn't something for you, we will have two lines, one for customers looking for lobster and one for customers who only want other types of seafood to make sure the latter can get in and out!
There are no minimums or maximums! We do not limit you but to keep things moving fast we will only sell lobster in the increments of 2, 5, and 10.
Be sure to plan for a line and a wait. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, plan according to the weather and remember coolers make a great chair! Believe it or not, many customers who have gone through the Mania before say the wait is one of the best parts of the experience! It's a great time to meet new people and exchange lobster recipes!!
Ideally, live lobsters should be cooked the same day they're delivered
. However, they can be kept for one additional day when stored properly. In a fridge, keep lobsters as cold as possible in an open container like our boxes. Pack them with damp newspaper to keep them moist but not wet. Never store them on ice or in tap water, as the fresh water will kill them. Even if Lobster are stored properly there is ALWAYS the chance that they may still die on you.
To Steam or to Boil??
The great debate. Avid Lobster eaters will swear by one or the other but the truth is each have pluses and minuses. The best option for you just depends on what you're looking for.
