Rock the Lobster This Weekend

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

This weekend might be bringing fall-like weather, but it's still time to eat like it's summer down at the annual Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival. This year's Master of Ceremonies is none other than local flashback radio legend Richard Blade, who will be available for meeting and jockeying tunes on Sunday. The event is reputed to be one of the largest of its kind, with the main attraction being inexpensive Maine lobster meals for only $17 a piece, that include a whole 1.25 fresh steamed Maine lobster, cole slaw, roll and butter. Admission to the three-day event is $8 for adults, and kids 12 and under get in for free. There will be tons of food to munch on, and loads of entertainment (albeit mostly low-grade local celebs and tribute bands, but the more sponsor Budweiser you ingest the less offensive these become). The whole shindig takes place right in our very own city's port, at San Pedro's Ports O' Call Village.
