On the 12th day of the Maryland #CrabCakeTour in 2021, Nestor and Jenn ventured from St. Michael’s down past Tilghman Island and then made a run for Hoopers Island through the Blackwater Refuge and Harriet Tubman Trail south of Cambridge. A long day of driving and sightseeing and simply brilliant clouds, weather, views and food. Spend a day on the Eastern Shore with us!

We did not pick a “best crab cake” on the Maryland Crab Cake Tour but we’ll say that we had none finer than this most remote of locations in the most awesome setting. Next time, we’ll get some oysters, too! Watch the Old Salty’s videos and you’ll know that we know and now you know…

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.

Helluva place they got down here at Hoopers Island. Don’t tell anyone how great it is!
Ah, the Eastern Shore life in Maryland…
Yeah. It was pretty good…
Iced up in Easton at the Royal Farms. The chicken tastes better on the Eastern Shore! Must be the fresh air!
And then we came back to St. Michael’s and ordered an inedible crab cake. (Hard to do, but it happened. Sent it back!) But we don’t talk about that because we had the company of great, lifelong friends!
