December 2 to May 15-Stone Crab Season!

But ouch, according to the Sun Sentinel, those claws are going to pinch your wallets and pocketbooks. After the lowest harvest on record for the 2018-2019 season that ended in May (1.9 million pounds), fishers and crabbers are hoping for a rebound in supply. Sanchez says retail consumers should expect to pay $21-$26 a pound for medium claws, $37-$40 per pound for large, $45-$50 for jumbos and over $50 for colossal.  Tuesday’s arrival of the ocean treat also came draped in uncertainty. Last year’s supply was dinged by the aftereffects of red tide and Hurricane Michael. The harvest keeps dipping dramatically, and researchers are trying to determine if it’s a cyclical downturn or more worrisome existential threat to the native species triggered by climate change and warming seas. The 2017-2018 haul was 2.1 million pounds. Annual harvests used to regularly exceed 3 million pounds, according to state statistics. By the way, if you get them cracked at the store, it’s best to eat them within 12 hours. If you buy them uncracked, they can be refrigerated and eaten within two days. Where to get them:

Joe’s Stone Crab — 11 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-673-0365. (Note: in its 106 season!)

A FREE event for our community at First Church of Coral Springs;  Each year we have over 10,000 visitors come through our recreated city of Bethlehem to imagine what life was like over 2,000 years ago. This is our 27th year and we would love to welcome everyone in the community. Come step back in time to Bethlehem Revisited, a living interactive recreation of the town of Bethlehem as it may have appeared 2,000 years ago.  You can enter the city between 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm on Friday, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm on Monday and Tuesday. Our historic recreation includes a walled city utilizing more than 30,500 square feet of lumber. See our authentic marketplace where shop owners are eager to show you their wares and demonstrate how they are made. You will also find Shepherds, Roman soldiers, Storytellers, and a Living Nativity.     Senior Pastor, Vidalis Lopez, puts it, “A story first told over 2,000 years ago is without a doubt, an old story. It’s ancient. “How can a story before my time truly have an effect in my life today?” What took place in Bethlehem changed a family, a town, a nation, a world. Every generation after is compelled to share it with their families and communities. It is an experience of God’s love for all of us. Bethlehem Revisited is not a mere event, it is an experience. It brings the story to life. It awakens our sense of wonder, and it welcomes every person to walk through a meaningful experience that gives us hope and shows love at its best.” Come and join the thousands of people who have experienced Bethlehem Revisited, now in our 27th year.
