Joe's Crab Shack Inside

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.

Hudson Bacon Fest - Review

IMG 20120902 100558

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.
