OAKHURST – History tells us ancient comic playwright Aristophanes said, “You cannot teach a crab to walk straight.”
While that may still be so, nothing can stop hoards of hungry mountain folk from walking straight over to the Rotary Club of Oakhurst Sierra’s 30th annual Crab Feed, on Saturday, Feb. 6, at 6 p.m. The Rotary Crab Feed, held each year at the Oakhurst Community Center, includes bread, salad, pasta and all-you-can-eat crab, and costs $45 per person. All proceeds from the fundraiser are donated locally.
Held each February, this is not just your ordinary event, it’s a production, say local Rotarians. “The community comes together for fun, fellowship and fabulous auction and raffle items not to mention a little friendly competition to see whose table is the most elaborate. So bring your bib, your drawn butter and your appetite and make plans to join us!”
Rotary’s Crab Feed typically serves about 1,600 lbs. of sweet, west coast Dungeness crab, and the high-decibel evening usually raises about $15,000. Raffle tickets, door prizes and a full, no-host bar will be available. For tickets, contact Bob Brosi at (559) 683-4694 or Doug Dearing at (559) 658-0300. The Oakhurst Community Center is located at 39800 Road 425B.
