The claws are about to come out.
Tasting Table's fourth annual Lobster Roll Rumble is our biggest, baddest shellfish showdown to date. Tickets are on sale now for the June 6, 2013, event ($150 for general admission, $250 for Tequila Don Julio VIP passes; click here to buy) at New York City's Metropolitan Pavilion, benefiting Share Our Strength.
Choose the winning lobster roll from 20 of the nation's top seafood shacks, whether you prefer your crustacean bathed in butter or slathered with mayonnaise. Will the East Coast reign supreme--with 2012 champion The Clam Shack returning for another round--or will the West or Midwest be best? Tweet your predictions to @TastingTable using the hashtag #LobsterRumble.
While sampling sandwiches, you'll also crack into savory sides, new Häagen-Dazs gelato, and free-flowing Don Julio cocktails, Stella Artois beer and FUZE refreshments. Additional sponsors Heritage Radio Network and Maine Tourism bring the event to a boil.
Tickets sell out faster than you can say "lobstah," so get yours now.
Get ready to experience shock and claw.
