a closer look: The Rustic Inn

On Ken P. D. Snydecast #164: Every Day’s A Holly-Day Dana talks about his love of Florida crab joints.

He described The Rustic Inn as an "incredible place."

The Rustic Inn opened in the mid 1950s and is known for their garlic crabs and in-depth interviews.

They have a Flickr account with scans of their menus and it certainly sounds delicious!

Red and spicy Islamorada conch chowder, linguini with red crab sauce and a crab sampler that sounds like the greatest thing on earth.

You may remember that Dana said he went to the Rustic Inn with a friend of Bristol Palin's:
Dana: I went there with a very sweet beautiful girl. Who was friends... her family... she grew up with...
Ken: Scott Baio.
Dana: No. A younger...
Ken: Charlie Callas.
Dana: I can't remember who it is. You're trying to be funny and it trumps everything.
Ken: Dick Butkis.
Dana: Bristol Palin.
Ken: That was funny?
Dana: No. I didn't say it was funny.
Ken: That trumps everything, though?
Dana: 'cause it's crazy.
