Lobster Mania — revisited!
Disappointed lobster lovers will get another chance Sept. 20 and 21, as Groomer’s Seafood will do a retake of Lobster Mania.
During their last event, Groomers sold out of live Maine lobsters a little sooner than they expected after dropping prices in return for Facebook followers — and bringing in droves of lobster maniacs.
Now, they’re looking for another 500 “likers” to push the price down to $7.95 per live lobster, and drop it another dollar as more people sign in. Check it out at Groomer’s Facebook page here.
