After camping out 15 hours, we were a few of the first people to try Joe's Crab Shack's food during normal business hours. We each tried a steam pot and some drinks as well as a crab nacho appetizer. A full review will come in the future once they have some time to settle down.

Today was the 1st Hudson Bacon Festival and I would describe it as a success. I don't think there is more than a handful of people who eat bacon that don't love it. This event is for all of us bacon lovers out there.
Admission to get in was $10, which was a little steep for access to the the dozen vendors and two food trucks, but a small percentage of the proceeds will go to local area food shelters. There was also face painting and a live band playing music.
