Taste something exotic

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

While chile peppers and tortillas can be found in abundance in New Mexico, seafood is a different story. If your mouth is watering for a crustacean, don’t plan a trip to a coastal destination, just head down to the Rotary Club of Los Alamos’s crab fest.

The seafood spread will kick off with a cash bar provided by Central Avenue Grill at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Trinity Hill Episcopal Church. At 6:30 p.m., a family style dinner will be served. The menu includes all-you-can-eat crab and prawn. For those who are not seafood lovers, barbecued chicken will be provided. Coleslaw, baked beans, bread and dessert will round out the meal.

Why serve seafood in a land-locked state? Event coordinator Skip King explained that while the Rotary special events committee was brainstorming ideas for an event that was new and different, he mentioned that his former Rotary Club in northern California hosted a successful all-you-can eat seafood dinner. Once the committee heard this idea, King said they thought it was something they could pull off, too.  

This soiree doesn’t just offer dinner. Live music will also be provided by Peace Meal, a six-member ensemble under the direction of Steven Booth.
