Dear How Dead:
Might you consider the possibility that most of us that post on the board did not know the dates of the Lobsterfest? I certainly did not know.
Perhaps the Lobsterfest Committee could make greater strides in apprising it's own villagers of the confirmed dates of the yearly fest, although I have come to conclude it is held the first weekend of July of each year. At least, that seems to be the trend to me.
On another note, the younger members of the LobsterFest Committee (I think), have planned a red carpet fundraising event at the Rainbow Restaurant for the evening of June 28th. Dress as if you were walking into a star studded Hollywood event. Have your butler/chauffeur drive you to the event. You will walk down a red carpet until you get to the seating area where your name will be announced as you enter. Three course meal is in order for the evening, as well as a royal hollywood style evening.
I think it is a very exciting event, especially since the island folks don't get a chance to dress up too much.
Cost is $65 per person.
