Lobsterfest 2008!

I can't tell you how stinkin' happy Lobsterfest makes me. Big ticket items. Lent business. Best time of the year to be Lobster Boys and Girls. While there are prices listed (see below) they are different depending on the market you live in/visit. Go to Red Lobster's site to see what prices might be where you live. I don't know who writes the copy for RL's promotions on the web site, but some of this is pretty lame if you ask me.

From the Red Lobster web site:

Indulge your craving for lobster in irresistible ways with our largest selection of savory lobster dishes of the year. Start with a classic like our Lobster Lover’s Dream®, featuring a succulent rock lobster tail and sweet Maine lobster tail. Discover NEW Fire-Grilled LobsterChops®, with Maine lobster tails wrapped around tender sea scallops. Or try our NEW Grilled Maine Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp with a creamy lobster butter sauce. So many lobster choices, so little time!

I'll have to look when I get to work, but I think our Lobster Lover's Dream is something in the $39 range. That's honestly a disappointment to me, as I think that price point will be a barrier to some (most) people. $34.99 would've sold a lot more of them, but I don't have any market research to back that up of course. I could use a crazy busy season. We seemed to have picked up the last week in our store, but it's been slow the last year to year and a half. Here's to hoping Lobsterfest is the cure to all that ails us!
