First, a story: (I guess fish stpries have to drag it out a bit....)
I am in Santa Fe now and my 1987 Honda Civic broke down (probably for good, RIP). We rented a new car and in a chat with the guy at the counter, we find out he is from Toms River/Pt. Pleasant/ Manasquan, NJ. Being that I used to spend my summers on the Jersey Shore, we got into a talk on seafood. He said his girlfriend is from Maine, and he has a friend from the Virgin Islands, and they are planning a lobster cook-off.
One person is bringing out or having a lobster shipped from Maine, another from the Caribbean, etc. Since the guy is a former chef, he will prepare them and compare/contrast. I suggested he make sure to go to Albertson's supermarket and pick up a (frozen) lobster from Santa Fe.
Sounds like fun huh? Anyone else ever done this?
