Old Bay Winner!

OLD BAY Gift Bag

As promised on Tuesday, I have used to generate  a winner for the Old Bay gift basket! (And have the screen shot to prove it!) Congratulations to Farr, commenter 2, who answered this when asked where the best crabs in the DC area are:

“I went to Jimmy Cantler’s in Annapolis last weekend. They were delicious and with my parents in town for the Fourth and footing the bill, very affordable.”

Farr wins the “Basket of the Bay” gift bag, which includes Old Bay Seasoning, Old Bay Seafood Steamer bag, a beach towel, beach bag, keychain with bottle opener, temporary Old Bay tattoo, and some great new Old Bay-inspired recipes for her to try out! Thanks to everyone who entered, may you be blessed with tasty crabs forever. (THE SEA KIND, people, crabs from the sea.)
