It's not difficult to imagine heading off to a summertime oceanside resort area on a day like today in New England. It's been snowing for a week straight (or so it seems), and today was no different.

Come by booth 309 if you find yourself in Ocean City this weekend. And if you can't find us there, pop your head into the nearest crab or oyster shack.
