So I ate my face off over here with mussels, shrimp, I PICHETTE on even one I needed to have something and then you’re like, let’s say a prayer. Here’s Dutch. Here’s shirt. Here’s dad. Oh, dinner served and I’m like, I thought you were bagging on the crab cakes. Now that being cheap. I thought you’re gonna come back to crab cakes next time. And then the next thing I know everybody’s eaten mac and cheese, salmon, chicken salad. And then you brought out cake and then you brought out burger cookies. And then you brought out butter pecan ice cream from that I had three scoops of after I said I was already full and then I went back and had more cake. So Jamie’s here Alicia is here. The running of the crabs are here. I conceded to BJ sir off already last night. I saw him I said okay, you’re not even letting me play this year. And he said you gotta get the female crabs.

Nestor J. Aparicio  02:08


already in time. Let’s give it the Pathfinders for autism. That’s what we need to do. What’s a surety? Yes, right.

Nestor J. Aparicio  02:15

BJ is racing for his charity this year and winning. That’s


Alicia  02:18

right. Speaking of that, we are looking for more racers who also is

Nestor J. Aparicio  02:22

in this nobody’s gonna want to get against me. It’s like getting in the ring gets Mike Tyson. Nobody wants to get in with BJ. You know, watch yourself. Watch BJs crab run by him.

Y’all should like participate in some way, you know, letting them know, I’m trying to get the word out. Don’t do what I’m doing. I always knew I told you this. I knew about the crab door because I worked at the paper. And it was the big deal to the mayor at the time in the 80s. And it was just a very well featured thing on all the news channels. Right. Right. Your dad conceived this out of boredom, quite frankly.

Damye Hahn  03:13

I think I think they, at one point the the attendance at the at the Preakness was down and they were looking for things around Baltimore to beef it up. And so they were just, you know, coming up with all kinds of fun things. And this was just something fun. And he did it every year. We used to do it on the blacktop and we tape it off, and now we actually have like a race track.

Nestor J. Aparicio  03:36

You know, I wouldn’t know that. My crab didn’t move last year. I kept looking at it slow. I was like tickling it. I’m like you’re crabby crabby. Come on. Come on, buddy. Here we go. Like now, the BJs like celebrating. And I’m like, here’s the stuff. I thought my crab was dead. I accused Lua. Give me a dead crab. I said Lou, what are you doing? You picture? I want to talk about your grand opening last night because I brought your mother over here and your mother stares at me when I do the show. Now she points at me. Last night was a beautiful thing for you and your family. And for everybody here. You’re running around trying to play hostess with most this and she’s all dressed up. Y’all have bags under your eyes. And I ate too much. But like I hope it was because you guys labored to get this place. Oh man, my wife freaked my wife came in and saw it. She’s like, it’s like they plopped it down. Because she wanted to take a picture in front of the old place on the way over for old time saving, like, forget that place to come over here cheating. And she came in and it’s literally, I’m sure you heard that from every single person because 90% of people listening hadn’t seen your data and seen it right. Oh,
