Mamie's has since moved to Aberdeen and I have no idea if they still have the weekly cheap lobster fest.
Although the lobster wasn't all that great, I miss it. And then, thanks to Facebook, I saw that Alonso's has cheap lobster every Tuesday. Eighteen bucks will get you a small crustacean, an ear of corn, and a baked potato. With REAL butter.
We tried out the deal this week. I'm happy to report that the corn was yellow (and sweet and corny), the potato had not been steamed in a foil wrapper, and although the lobster did ooze water all over our plates, it was tender and sweet. And of course the butter went over all of it.
Had we stuck to the lobster dinner and water, we could have gotten out of there for less than what we usually spent at Mamie's, but we had the queso fundido appetizer and a couple glasses of Magic Hat #9 draught. Still - I thought it was a good price for whole lobster, plus sides, don't you?

Yum!! We're not exactly know for out lobster here in GA, but I have been tearing up the crawfish all summer!! We drove down to the beach last weekend and went to one of my favourite seafood spots - The Crab Shack at Tybee Island (http://www.thecrabshack.com/). If you're ever down this way you have to check it out. Beautiful patio overlooking the bay and fresh and reasonably priced seafood! We went every day!
To me, it's such a deadly sin to serve a baked potato steamed in the foil wrapper. I need the skin to be crunchy.
And it's fun to remake some memories. Friend of mine swears the lobsters under 2 pounds are the most flavorful.
