The sea has much to teach us—its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $105, you get a full feast of four 1.25-pound live Maine lobsters, 4 pounds of mussels, and four jumbo crab cakes from GetMaineLobster.com (a $245 value). Most of the cost of overnight shipping ($35 of the $45 total cost) is included; a $10 handling fee is not included in the price of the Groupon.
Chartering a cargo of aquatic delights from the Atlantic, GetMaineLobster.com ships the best in handpicked seafood to the doorsteps of bib-wearing landlubbers across the continental United States. The icy waters of Maine are said to make lobster meat sweeter, and GetMaineLobster.com brings that sweet meat home with this bounteous banquet for four that’s large enough to fill a captain’s quarters and capsize even kraken-size appetites.
With this deal, you get the Maine Lobster Dinner for Four, which includes four Maine lobsters, all still alive and bragging about their snappy outfits, arriving at their new home to await a buttery afterlife. Seafood snackers also get 4 heaping pounds of mussels that beg to be boiled, steamed, roasted, barbecued, or fried in butter. Last, but absolutely not least, a gang of four jumbo crab cakes walks the plank into the galley of gustatory glee, completing a perfect storm of succulent supper.
Just in time for an idyllic date, GetMaineLobster.com's overnight shipping gives heroic chefs ample opportunity to pretend they caught the sea bounty bare-handed from the neighbor's kiddie pool. Follow one of GetMaineLobster's handy recipes—including a delectable Ebetino Denver lobster boil—to ensure a successful feast, but feel free to dress the lobsters in special hats or make a lobster-shell suit for all-important Lobsterman superhero appearances.
