How To Eat A Stone Crab Direct From Joe's

It was just on the news. Joe's Stone Crab on Washington in Miami Beach just opened for their 105th season Friday night. They held a big charity gala the night before. Joe's is an institution in South Florida and I remember when I worked in Miami, it was a big deal to take the staff out to eat there. Everyone should check it out at least once...preferably on a weekday when there are less people! That area is crazy...and expensive to park. But, I digress.

If you're like me, you want to look like you know what you are doing when you go out to eat. Lobster-growing up summers in Maine-I've got down...but as for crabs, and specifically Stone Crabs, it's a little more mysterious. Here's the answer as to how to eat one direct from the folks at Joe's.
