Cool Stuff: Mail a Friend a "Lobstah".



Restaurants throughout the world feature "Maine lobster" -- that sweet, succulent stuff that makes grown people don bibs and make a delicious mess. What better gift could you send to a friend, on a special occasion, than live Maine lobsters, complete with bibs, crackers, picks, wet wipes as well as cooking and eating instructions?

Shipped in special insulated cartons for next-day delivery via UPS or FedEx, you can be sure to surprise a friend with this memorable gift.

If you really want to blow someone away, a few of the purveyors listed below will overnight a complete Live Lobster Bake, which can include steamer clams, black mussels, New England seafood chowder, sweet corn, red potatoes and topped off with a native blueberry pie....

The Maine Lobster Council lists 47 members that will ship live lobsters at www.mainelobsterpromo.com

There's also a group of fishermen out of Port Clyde who run a cool seafood program. You buy shares of their fresh catch and pick it up each week at a designated location. My interest in the program is its focus on sustainability. I recently wrote a blog article on the topic: http://sustainableoceanproject.com/2009/11/09/maine-fishermen-think-outside-the-net/
