For the first time since 2018, the Preakness Crab Race is on at Faidley's at Lexington Market. On Wednesday, March 17 at noon, local celebrities and crustacean lovers with jockey for position on the Lexington Market floor for Chesapeake Bay supremacy. Alicia from Faidley's invites Nestor to saddle up as a "Crab Jockey."
The best part of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour is bringing good folks together. It's no surprise as neighbors, Damye Hahn of Faidley's Seafood and Ron Legler of The Hippodrome know each other. Hear how they're working together to make your next downtown theater, sports or music experience safer and more memorable.
Nestor Aparicio is on the road in The Free State in search of the perfect Maryland crab cake. His first stop is the originator, Nancy Devine, who began mixing up her now world famous jumbo lump crab cakes at Lexington Market in the 1980s. Let her tell you about her mustardy delicious concoction...
Every Orioles fan remembers Barbara Phelps-Anderson, who hit it big in the 50th Anniversary of the Maryland Lottery celebration when Ryan Mountcastle hit the 50th home run in a memorable Baltimore baseball summer. Nestor caught up with the huge Birds fans down in Sunnyside to relive the magic moment and talk offseason Orioles baseball.
Legendary Philadelphia blues rockers Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers return to the Baltimore area for the first time in two decades and Nestor asks why it's still fun to put the band back together almost four decades after the Hammerjacks magic of "I'm Not Your Man."
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh privately vowed to help Nestor Aparicio with his media credential bullying situation with Chad Steele in any way he could. Weeks later, Aparicio was exterminated. Harbaugh then told him he was unhappy about it but powerless because it wasn't his department in Owings Mills.
As the Maryland Crab Cake continues to tell the good work being done locally, Nestor gets better educated on the modern efforts, fundraising and research that The Leukemia & Lymphona Society continues to do to keep folks like his wife alive after cancer strikes. Let Katie Stegman, her beautiful 4-month old baby and Dominick Iaquinto tell you about their vision to make Nestor the "Visionary Of The Year" in 2024.
“What did do you do wrong, Nestor?” “Why would the Ravens throw you out?” “Why are you the only one in the local media whom they’ve thrown out?” “Why have they treated you this way?” “WHAT DID YOU DO WRONG!?!” I am fed up with these questions from Baltimore sports fans so I wrote to the owner because these questions are his to answer. Letters to John Harbaugh and Eric DeCosta are also coming soon.
