Legendary South Beach restaurant Joes Stone Crabs season began two days ago, and were sure the local institution has already served hundreds of decadent, tender crab claws since then. And although theyre well worth the months-long wait and equally lofty prices, theyre being served up this Sunday for a good cause the abused, abandoned, and neglected children served by the Childrens Home Society of Florida.
Last year the organization helped more than 90,000 families, and still more are in need. Each year Joes does its part by putting its regular service on pause to open its doors to Claws for a Cause and the philanthropists in our midst. At 1 p.m., join the fray and nosh on a brunch of Florida stone crabs, coleslaw, hash browns, and, of course, Joes famed key lime pie. And dont miss the wallet-prying cocktail hour, which promises champagne, wine, and bloody marys capable of putting anyone in a giving mood. Tickets start at $275.
