Dinner at Price's

Tonight, I had dinner with a bunch of old Tidewater Grille people. Ernie and Helen, the previous owners of the resturant, invited a bunch of the old-timers to Price's Seafood for dinner. Let's see, who showed up? Ruth (the former bookkeeper), Chris K. (a former chef), Steve (Ernie's younger brother and dishwasher), Joyce (one of Ernie's sisters), Sandy (a dishwasher), Brenda (a former manager), Bill (Brenda's husband), Brian (Brenda's oldest son and former food runner), Olga (a former waitress), Tracy (Olga's husband), and Matt and Melanie (Olga's children). While we were there, David (a current bartender) and Huggy (a regular bar patron) showed up and joined the festivities. On top of all that, Mark (Ernie and Helen's old partner at the Tidewater), Deward (a former cook), and Theresa (a former manager and waitress), who currently own and operate Price's Seafood, were on hand to make it an extra special night. It sure was nice to get together with everyone, I wish that I could see them more often.
For you foodies out there, I shared a soup sampler (which included Cream of Crab, Maryland Crab, and Mark's Oyster Stew), Crab Dip with pretzel pieces and vegetable sticks, and Fried Calamari with Brenda and her family. Steamed crabs with tons of Old Bay and a Seafood Sampler (with mussels, clams, and shrimp) were brought for everyone, and I shared fried Crab Cakes with Brenda and family.
