    I have a friend here in Monterey that owns a few restaurants, one of which sells something like 6 millions pounds of squid a year. He has offered to do a squid and octopus dinner for Sat., but we realize that not everyone likes eating the rubbery little buggers.

    The restaurant is on the wharf and has great views of the bay and the boats.

    On the menu, he serves it 8 or 9 different ways. http://www.restauranteur.com/abalonetti/menu.htm

    I was hoping Dr. SOS would bring a fresh :archi: steak for us to try out.

    Having heard about the joys of architeuthis flesh firsthand from Dr. Clyde Roper, all I can say to that last suggestion is YECHHH!!!

    Will there be any Humboldt on the menu? That IS what those calamari steaks in the frozen food aisle of Trader Joe's are reputed to be...

    The menu is heavy on seafood, especially the group meals in the semi-primate room - we belong there! I would enjoy that, but lots of people want meatier fare. There aren't many meaty options, and none in the group menus.

    He owns another place just across the wharf that is a lot meatier. And do n't worry about what's on that menu, I'll get us a lot better than that.

    I wonder can we just run around the wharf eating at both restaurants at once....


    But can't we just have instant noodles instead?

    Of course I'd eat squid for dinner. They'd do the same for me, wouldn't they?

    You and Erich have both met Clyde Roper???? OMG ! SO jealous!

    What I really want to know is where did he get that amazing tie, and where can I get one?

    As for the original question:

    Well, probably not, but I can supply plenty of belemnites. They make excellent toothpicks.
