The Kalaekilohana Crab Shake

Rusty Junior’s Claim Your Magnet #1

Kenny and Kilohana just returned from San Francisco. I wasn’t invited. Apparently Alaska Airlines doesn’t allow refrigerators on their flights.

They were out there promoting the upcoming contest where you can enter to win a trip to Hawaii for 2 persons, including a 4 night stay at Kalaekilohana, airfare fare from a non-stop west coast gateway, and a credit for car rental. All you have to do is go to the contest page on the website and submit a photo of you letting Hawaii happen wherever you are. Easy- yeah!

Since I didn’t make the trip, I thought I would celebrate by posting my first few CLAIM YOUR MAGNET pics from San Francisco. We get a lot of great guests at Kalaekilohana from San Francisco. Being a fridge, I love food, so this first one was right up my alley.

Some Interesting Background

It turns out that Dungeness crab was once plentiful in the San Francisco Bay all the way to the shores of Oakland and Berkley. Immigrants to the area formed the backbone of the crabbing fleet throughout much of its history dating back over 125 years. Of course, people came from all over the world to enjoy them. Today, there is a season for Dungeness crab and the opening of the season can be quite an event at Fisherman’s Wharf.
