A few days ago, I saw a tweet from Baltimore Sun columnist Dan Rodricks about a crab cake being sold by High’s, a local convenience store chain. I thought for about half a second about going out to a High’s and trying it, but I’d also said the same about their fried cod sandwich, but never followed through on that idea. It’s a gas station. Thankfully, he tried it himself and saved me from having to go out there, since the meat is claw. It’s like $8.99 and I can go to my favorite seafood place and get an excellent backfin crab cake for a couple bucks more.
Thinking forward to the next few months, I think I’d love a great snowball this summer. Yet, I doubt that’s going to happen. I’m not sure, no matter how good they are, that snowball stands will be allowed to be categorized as essential. Yes, they serve a food item, one pretty well beloved in Baltimore, but I don’t think they case can, or will, be made.
