Solano crab feed season off to fast start

From page A2 | January 11, 2013 |

Solano County’s crab feed frenzy is set to start its 2013 run as a bevy of nonprofits and other community group make plans for their seasonal fundraisers.

My wife and I attended our first crab feed – ever – this time last year and had a ball. It was a crab and spaghetti feed to benefit the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield and its efforts to support community activities. It was a messy affair, but well worth the price of admission, even for those who are not seafood aficionados.

This year’s Kiwanis crab and pasta feed will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Fairfield Community Center, 1000 Kentucky St. For tickets or more information, call 421-1831.

Here’s the rest of the initial installment.
