The Mountain Winery in Saratoga is dishing up its delicious annual all-you-can-eat crab feed on Sunday, January 31. The cost is $100 for adults, $46 for kids 3-11, and free for kids under 3. Tickets cost a bit more than last year since the crab is being brought in from Oregon due to California’s crab shortage. Advance online ticket purchase is required. Parking is free.
The event takes place at the winery’s Historic Winery Building. Tickets include fresh crab from Oregon (choice of cold and/or hot) plus pasta, garlic bread, salad, and dessert. Beverages will be sold separately, and gratuity is not included. When buying tickets, attendees can choose a 4 p.m., 5 p.m., or 6 p.m. seating. But that doesn’t mean you only have an hour to eat. For example, if you choose 4, you can stay until the end. The separate seatings and staggered arrival times are for the purpose of eliminating long lines.
Dinner guests will enjoy live music by acoustic rock/pop band “Hootenanny!” (that’s not a typo, their name actually has an exclamation point in it). For those who will be attending for the first time, know that the event’s atmosphere is fun, casual and comfortable. I enjoyed it tremendously last year. Bon Appetit!
