Free crabs for a year - maybe for life


At new Krispy Kreme locations, the first person in line gets doughnuts for a year.

At Joe's Crab Shack restaurants, the first 100 people in line get snow crabs for a year. And maybe for life.

Joe's, a family friendly, Southern-style seafooder with a few locations in the region, is opening at 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 16 in Deptford Landing shopping center (2000 Clements Bridge Road, Deptford).

The line typically begins forming early. A drawing will determine the winner of crabs for life.

Guests can participate in Joe’s month-long fundraiser for Autism Speaks by purchasing coupons for free kid’s meals, appetizers and entrees in exchange for charitable donations to the organization. For every $1 donation, guests receive a free kid’s meal; with a $5 donation, a free Crazy-Good Crab Dip; and with a $10 donation, a free Classic Steampot.
