1st Maryland Crab Cake Tour: Day 13 Paying tribute to Bill Burton and outrunning a Cambridge summer storm at Ocean Odyssey

Must Read

On the lucky 13th day of the 2021 Maryland Crab Cake Tour, Nestor and Jenn headed east together over the Bay Bridge en route to St. Michael’s via Cambridge, Hurlock (yes, the Suicide Bridge crab cake was so nice, we tried it twice) and then west through Easton and a violently beautiful Eastern Shore summer lightning show and downpour.

We love to hear the rain in the summertime.

The highlight of the day was finally walking on the bridge named for Nestor’s former colleague at The Baltimore Evening Sun, the late, great Bill Burton. And a very tasty crab cake on a special day at Ocean Odyssey in Cambridge. We’ll be back for the RAR beer soon enough!

Follow along all of July for last year’s glorious and delicious 30 crab cakes in 30 days (#CrabCakeTour on Twitter and Facebook) and let Nestor re-tell you where to go this summer for a tasty ‘cake.

This year’s tour is sponsored by The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill Industries and Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland and begins at Rocky Gap State Park on August 1st and will stretch for 31 thirsty days and nights as Nestor celebrates his 31st Anniversary as Baltimore’s longest-running and most celebrated radio voice and media traveling crab cake taster all month for a second run at great Maryland businesses and local breweries all over The Free State. From Oakland to Ocean City, from Cumberland to Cambridge – The Maryland Crab Cake Tour retrospective from 2020 is here and the 2021 edition is coming your way.

If you have a nominee for a delicious Maryland crab cake somewhere on the local roads, now is the time to toss Nestor a note: nes@baltimorepositive.com. We’re always looking for a new place to bring our sponsors: The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill Industries and Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland in support of Restaurant Week from September 16-25, 2022.
