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?
