Snow crabs tend to be weirdly addicting. You crack one open, suck it down, and sooner or later you’re ten deep, you’re covered in crab carcasses, and you have no idea what year it is.
At least that’s been the constant on my end…
The Convention Center’s recently renovated sports bar/beer hall, Field House, is now offering snow crabs every Tuesday, all you can eat of them. For $25, chef Andrew Brown (previously of White Dog and Opa) will serve you an endless supply of snow crab, fries, and drawn butter. They’re an easy pair with local crafts too, so grab a long table, throw down some beers, and gluttonize in snow crabs forever.

Taco Tuesdays at Lolita are back. For only $20, each guest has a choice of four different tacos: grilled skirt steak, beer braised pork shoulder, seared wild mushrooms, and grilled chicken borracha. After that, every guest will receive avocado-tomatillo salsa, roasted tomato-chipotle salsa, jicama & orange salad, mexican beans, arroz amarillo, and fresh corn tortillas.
Remember, it’s BYOT, so bring your best bottle, bring cash, and in the immortal words of Stateside’s George Sabatino on the Philadelphia episode of The Layover, “…get ripped on tequila and eat f**king carnitas all night.”
