by Lanna Nguyen on Aug 30, 2016 in Roundups

The pop-up crab house is winding down its time at the former Crane & Turtle space in Petworth, with Labor Day Weekend being its last hurrah. Stop by before the doors officially close and enjoy all the seafood your heart desires: blue crabs, steamed clams, peel and eat shrimp, po’ boys, crab cakes and more. Pair your crustaceans with ice cold Natty Boh’s or Orange Crushes. (828 Upshur St., NW; 202-702-2628)
