The Makings of a Lobster Party
Thousands of fresh lobsters make their way to DLM for Lobstermania each year the Saturday before Memorial Day, May 26! Friends make plans to queue up in line before the sale officially starts, and what could be just another line is a ritual of its own. The energy is one to behold as folks eagerly await the makings of the most delicious feast, which will inevitably set the stage for the good times to continue throughout the weekend.
Sure there’s the fact that we think the world of our lobstering friends at Ready Seafood who come all the way from Maine for Lobstermania every year, an annual tradition at DLM now for more than 40 years and counting. Their mission is to share their love of fresh, succulent lobster and spread the word about sustainably caught lobster and why the practices of each fishery is important.
But truth be told, the DLM community has made this tradition one that sticks as we hear countless stories of friends and neighbors making a party out of their lobster feast. Family members trek from near and far to all be together with lobster at the table. It’s become apparent that this treasure from the sea is meant to be shared. Lobstermania sale starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 26, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
The Tale of These Lobsters
The Ready brothers fell in love with lobstering at a young age and the local lobstermen were their heroes. They took their childhood obsession and grew it into a thriving business! They’re passionate about educating people on how hard-working lobstermen work toward a common goal of making it a sustainable industry. We’re lucky to have our lobstering friends from Ready Seafood visit us every year during Lobstermania!
