And not just any crabs: We’re talking about the delicate, sweet blue crab bounty of the Chesapeake Bay, whose Latin name Callinectes sapidus means "beautiful swimmer." There are few things that get Marylanders more excited than tearing into a bushel of red-shelled beauties encrusted with crab seasoning, or enjoying the delicacy of a fried soft shell, accompanied by an ice cold Natty Boh.Marylanders prepare hard shells and other seafood by steaming them, rather than the boiling that is common along the rest of the East Coast and Louisiana.Many restaurants use cheaper pasteurized crab from Asia for their dishes. Gjerde notes that other species of crab lack the depth of flavor and delicate texture of blue crabs.
You might think you’re pulling into someone’s private marina, but beyond the dirt road is the oasis of Hard Yacht Cafe.
There’s something calming about being on the water, sipping a cool drink on a hot day, letting the breeze pass by while you pretend to be on vacation/contemplate stealing some rich guy’s boat.
Thankfully, Maryland has a robust coastline, and therefore, plenty of prime waterfront bars.
Neighborhood Scout® uses the official government designation for neighborhoods - the census tract.
Census tracts are small, relatively permanent subdivisions of a county that are defined by the U. Census Bureau in conjunction with local authorities all across the country to define real neighborhoods that are bounded to contain areas with homogeneous population characteristics (including economic status, lifestyle, and living conditions).
