The Stone Crab Weekend phenomena was started by Frenchy’s in 1984 when owner, Michael “Frenchy” Preston, decided to offer his signature, fresh stone crab claws to the general public for just above cost. Today, visitors from around the world flock to Frenchy’s restaurants to enjoy the fresh claws and festive “beach party” atmosphere when season opens on October 15.
“Stone Crab Weekend is the biggest event we have all year,” said Preston. “It’s amazing how many people come here to enjoy our fresh stone crab claws with us year after year. Some actually plan their vacations around this event!”
In its 34th year, the Stone Crab Weekend block party has more than just those tasty claws to offer.
