1st Maryland Crab Cake Tour: Day 2 Mayor of Ocean City joins us at Harrison’s Inlet to discuss love of Baltimore and White Marlin Open


History of Ocean City and Inlet crab cakes at Harrison’s Harbor Watch.

On Day 2 of the 1st Maryland Crab Cake Tour in August 2021, Nestor spent a sunny day in Ocean City at Harrison’s at The Inlet chatting with Mayor Rick Meehan. Lots of Baltimore roots and discussion of the past, present and future of our favorite beach.

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, 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.

Telling the real Ocean City story in 2021 from White Marlin Open
Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan helps Nestor kickoff Maryland Crab Cake Tour at Harrison’s Harbor Watch
My friends at Weis Markets kept me in fresh fruit and coconut water throughout the month of August all across the state. I started the day downtown.
Everywhere I went that first week in the Bronco from Koons Ford of Baltimore on Security Boulevard, people kept staring at it and looking in the windows. I was the first one in the state of Maryland to have it on the road.
This is Heather LaFollette from the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce. She was my supremely awesome assistant at the beach and one of the coolest people ever.
This is the window I was looking out as I interviewed Mayor Meehan and ate that very tasty Harrison’s crab cake on the second floor. I did NOT get the chowder. Next time…
After a full day of Maryland Crab Cake Tour conversation at Harrison’s at The Inlet, I made my way to the bayside at 12th Street and the weigh-ins for the White Marlin Open. I also enjoyed a few beers. And then…
I was attacked by a dinosaur on the Coastal Highway on my way to Fish Tails!
Then I was attacked by Batman. This was the last picture we ever took together. I will eulogize and pay tribute to my dear friend Michael Beatty when I return to Ocean City in August 2022.
