Bar Dupont Hosting Crab Fest on Patio

From our friends at Bar Dupont...

Claw Your Way to the Patio, Saturday, June 18, 12-5 PM

Summer is here and with the rain behind us (hopefully) Bar Dupont will open its patio up to crab lovers everywhere! From 12-5:00 PM on Saturday, June 18, they will be hosting a special Crab Fest to truly kick off the season. No need to bring your own mallets and knives, they’ve got that taken cared of for you. Come with your empty belly’s to enjoy Capital Crab Company’s delicious feast.

Bar Dupont in partnership with Capital Crab Company will be offering a special Crab Feast for you to enjoy while relaxing on the beautiful patio. Get your claws messy with the hands-on experience of cracking into a Chesapeake crab and tasting the sweet and succulent meat. The feast will include all-you-can-eat crab and sides for $40.

For those less interested in the labor of cracking open your own crab, Capital Crab Company has you covered with their food truck options. They will be serving up staples like Crab Cake Sandwiches $14, Jumbo Shrimp Platter $16.50 and Crab Mac 'n Cheese Platter $12.50. Each platter comes with two sides which include mac n cheese, hush puppies, cole slaw or corn on the cob. For those of us watch trying to maintain our summer bods, go with the lighter Pineapple Shrimp Chop Salad served with a soy ginger dressing.

To quench your thirst the Capital Crab Company will be offering Fresh Squeezed Lemonade for $2. For a little more kick in your drink, Bar Dupont has mixed together cocktails special for the Crab Fest. Pair a crab cake sandwich with Tequila Daisy $6 or try their spin on the southern sweet tea with a Whiskey Peach Sweet Tea $6. You can also stick to the basics with an Old Bay Bloody Mary $6. Bar Dupont will also feature Domestic Beer Buckets $15 and Craft Beer Buckets for $20.
