About Krampus

(from krampus.com): “Krampus is the dark companion of St. Nicholas, the traditional European winter gift-bringer who rewards good children each year on December 6. The kindly old Saint leaves the task of punishing bad children to a hell-bound counterpart known by many names across the continent — Knecht Ruprecht, Certa, Perchten, Black Peter, Schmutzli, Pelznickel, Klaubauf, and Krampus. Usually seen as a classic devil with horns, cloven hooves and monstrous tongue, but can also be spotted as a sinister gentleman dressed in black or a hairy man-beast. Krampus punishes the naughty children, swatting them with switches and rusty chains before dragging them in baskets to a fiery place below.”

LOBSTER ROLLS! (seriously)

Sorry about the caps there, but, well … we’re excited.

We are thrilled to announce that we are now serving lobster rolls, shrimp rolls and chowder on the weekends. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you can now get these delicious snacks between 5 pm and 1 am. Seriously, they are SO. GOOD. We even built a little window in our back hallway leading into our kitchen, just so you can pick them up directly at the griddle.

We’re getting our seafood from the excellent Sea to Table, which partners with local fisherman from small, sustainable wild fisheries to bring seafood directly to us. Our lobster comes from Mainers John & Brendan Ready, who track each lobster back to the boat, captain & trap location. Trap location! Insane and amazing. We can’t wait for you guys to try this stuff.
