Attention Bay Area crab lovers: you only have 5 days left to attend the Dungeness Crab Festival hosted by Lark Creek Restaurant Group. They have added delicious, creative crab dishes to their menus, including One Market Restaurant and Lark Creek Steak in San Francisco, Yankee Pier in Larkspur, and Lark Creek Blue on San Jose’s Santana Row.

I also have an opportunity for one of you to win a gift card good at Lark Creek restaurants -- see end of article for contest details. You can use the card during the last couple days of the crab festival, or at a future date.
