I've been to a fair share of crab boils/clam bakes, but one this past weekend ranks the highest. Literally. It happened on the 33rd floor of my friend Leah and her bf Jason's apartment. They went all out to host one heck of a party, so I thought I'd share some photos of how it all went down. They cleared out their living room to set up rows of tables covered in newspaper (which happened to feature Jason's artwork), and then they gathered rubber mallets, crab bibs, paper towels, and wet naps. With the help of our friend Frank, they boiled up buckets of fresh shrimp, crawfish, and crab—plus the traditional mix of potatoes, corn, vegetables, and Old Bay Seasoning (simply the best!). It was messy as all get out and a major undertaking on the hosts' behalf, but we all had such a great time. Thanks for having us. L&J!
