Joes logo A Visit to Joes Crab Shack And A Gift Card GiveawayI recently got the chance to pay a unique visit to Joe’s Crab Shack on International Drive. A group of Orlando bloggers were invited to learn about Joe’s Crab Shack’s commitment to serious food, fun times, and giving back to the community.

I like Joe’s idea of learning, because it reminds me a lot of eating!

George Atsangbe, Joe’s Crab Shack’s Group Culinary Director was our guide, and Jeffrey Johnson, the General Manager of the Joe’s at 8400 International Drive in Orlando, was our host as we broke, snapped, cracked, and dipped our way through Joe’s “Home Grown Summer” menu.

Jeffrey’s team first brought out a handsome portion of peel and eat shrimp. Then we started in on the Steampots. Mmmmm Steampots. All steampots come with fresh, locally grown corn on the cob and new potatoes. My favorite two steampots were The Ragin’ Cajun Steampot (Dungeness crab, Queen crab, shrimp and andouille sausage), and the Samuel Adams Steampot (sweet snow crab, 1 pound of clams, meaty lobster claws, and smoked sausage, all steamed in Samuel Adams lager). I tried clams for the first time and even New Zealand green lipped mussels in the Santolla Steampot!

The food alone is reason enough to check out Joe’s Crab Shack, but I think a visit is certainly in order for a birthday or family celebration, or a work party or event. A dance party broke out during our visit, and it didn’t take long for guests to join the staff in a group boogie. The atmosphere was fun and friendly.

I discovered the deal last week. I was a little skeptical at first because the process is a little wonky, and the website isn’t the easiest to navigate, but I made the payment, printed my receipt, and didn’t have any trouble trading it in for a $50 gift card.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz wants Americans to have a conversation. A conversation about our future as a country and the part we all have in making this nation a better place for us and our children.

In his open letter issued June 29, 2012 Howard wrote in part:

“Let’s tell our government leaders to put partisanship aside and to speak truthfully about the challenges we face. Let’s ask our business leaders to create more job opportunities for the American economy. And as citizens, let’s all get more involved. Please, don’t be a bystander. Understand that we have a shared responsibility in solving our nation’s problems. We can’t wait for Washington.”

To spark the conversation he’s inviting all of us to Starbucks for a free cup of coffee on July 4th, 2012.

So grab a free tall coffee on July 4th, and check out other ways to save money at Starbucks.
