The seventeenth day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill, Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland featured a day at the beach and stop at Crabs-To-Go in Berlin and some local attention on the farm at Burley Oak Brewing.
On the 28th day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour, Nestor and Jenn left Hagerstown early to head to the fields of Antietam and a day in the vineyard. And then after lunch they discovered the beauty of downtown Frederick and a swirl of fun activity.
Nestor saw Rhea Feikin talk about it once on MPTV and always wanted to ride the Frostburg Flyer. It was just as good as advertised. A wonderful day in Cumberland exploring the hills of Western Maryland.
On the 23rd day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour, Nestor came home to Baltimore County and the legendary deliciousness of Costas Inn in Dundalk. The family has been serving my community for over 50 years and it was Mom's favorite place to be on Mother's Day for fried crab cake, cole slaw and fries.
It was a double cake day on the Eastern Shore as Nestor and family head to Smith Island to make a legend chocolate cake and drop by The Narrows on the way home for a crab cake and Kent Island hospitality.
