National Lobster Day Wednesday, June 15th

While the origin of National Lobster Day remains a bit unclear, not knowing its purpose shouldn’t prevent you from celebrating one of the finest delicacies of the sea! We encourage everyone to celebrate with us at The Lobster Trap in downtown Asheville, NC. We will be offering our traditional lobster dinner for only $29 on National Lobster Day, Wednesday, June 15th, 2016.

To get into the spirit, we would love to share some fascinating lobster trivia:

In Colonial times, servants and slaves were the only people allowed to eat lobsters regularly.
Lobsters aren’t all red. They can be many different colors, including bright blue, white and brilliant gold tones.
Lobsters can be right-handed, left-handed, or ambidextrous.
Many lobster species can live to be over 100 years old.
Most lobsters travel over 100 miles a year and have migratory patterns.

We look forward to seeing you on June 15th!
