Take out your cracker and tie on a bib—it's the most magical time of the year: stone crab season.
The South Beach Seafood Festival (Oct. 22-26) is the official kickoff of stone crab season—and this year is more delicious than ever. Because while the sweet and meaty stone crabs are king, the festival lets you sample every fish— and crustacean—in the sea. And in luxury style, no less. Think mouthwatering sushi, oysters on oysters on oysters, and lobster tails aplenty. The 1 1/2-block VIP experience kicks off with the Chef Showdown on Friday night, and includes private access to Joe’s Stone Crab and a walk-through California Wine Country experience throughout the weekend. Get cracking.
