Don't forget to grease the union guys.

Hey Cappy, do you guys have a bay scallop season on the cape? It opened here the other day and I just had some for dinner and they were damn good.

real Bay scallops are a wonder - make those four-bucks-a-pound imports seem like flavorless crapola in comparison

Thats because "sea scallops" are made from skate, or so I am told.

The other day I was doing a blow out at a house on Shinnecock Bay and I set the clock to do am 2 min cycle while I went out and looked for scallops with my muck boots on. I found a few.

Work at a park in NY? Sounds like a repair job to clean up behind occupy wall street.

While I was working in the basement of a rental house, I heard the tenant on the phone, in the adjacent office, and it was obvious he was in the seafood business, so I asked him about Nantucket bay scallops, and he kind of shook his head, and said they were going for $17 a pound at that moment, which was why you weren't ever going to see them in supermarkets.

Not much fresh seafood here in Colorado. The best I find is at Whole Foods, which is probably middle of the road for those of you on the coasts. I love visiting family in MA and OR, partially for the food.

you might investigate restaurant supply houses, if there are any near you

I paid $19.50 a pound for Peconic bay scallops yesterday. But they were worth it.

There you go. Sear those pups in a heavy saute pan on high heat, and let those inner sugars out to caramelize.

Tiny bit of some coarse Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, seared on high heat about 2-3 minutes each side with a little butter in the pan, good to go. Might have to do a seafood night soon.

Ditto here, though Trader Joe's does have some good fresh stuff from time to time. We had a guy last year that delivered shrimp from Rocky Point, Mexico but I heard the Health Dept. got on him and we have not seen him this year.:cry:

Wish we had Trader Joes in Colorado. Closest one is Santa Fe. We do have Sunflower Market which isn't too bad.

Has anyone heard of The Men's Room (http://www.kisw.com/pages/5748583.php) ?

I know it's a local radio station but it is known and listened world wide because these guys kick ass.

In any case they made there own beer a few years back and Elysian sponsors it. Check it out sometime.

It's not a local beer either , you should be able to see it around your local store.

Have you ever tried any of Southampton Public House beers? If you are anywhere around NY you should be able to find it. http://www.publick.com/
