Let them crack crab. Contra Costa County Supervisor Federal Glover of Pittsburg will host his annual “all you can eat” crab feed on Jan.7.
It’ll cost you $40 a person for the festivities, which begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails, at the Good Shepherd Parish Hall, 3200 Harbor St. in Pittsburg.
Glover is running for re-election but proceeds from this event benefit his officerholder account; that’s a fund that incumbents are permitted to use for expenses related to serving in office such as crab feed tickets.
