|Hammer & Claw Fest|
If Rockaway is too far for a crab-tastic feast, check out the Hammer & Claws festival that is set to take over the Terminal Stores building in Chelsea on the weekend after labor day. This is the second year that the festival will get crackin' - about 40,000 crabs will be steamed over the three day extravaganza, and you'll probably eat about 39,994 of those. Afternoon and evening seatings are available - tickets are $89 for adults and $45 for the kiddies. Get more info here.
