Three Nights of Crab Boils on the Rockaways
Peter Hoffman on how to eat a crab.
Back Forty is heading to Rockaway Beach for three nights this month for some summer crab boils. On Thursday, August 9, and Saturday, August 18 and 25, the crab boils will be held outdoors at the Rockaway Beach Club's 96 Street concession (Rockaway Beach Boardwalk at 96 Street).
The cost is $25 and includes a bucket of spiced blue crabs, corn on the cob, and steamed potatoes.
You can find a list of the musical entertainment here. The boils will last from 5 to 10 p.m. or until the crabs run out.
