Demand for Holiday Stuffed Maine Lobster Prompts Second Tasting on Dec. 10

“Stuff the Lobster Instead of the Bird” remains the rallying cry at encore celebration

Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill has scheduled a special December encore of its Holiday Baked Stuffed Maine Lobster tasting and wine-paring event for the hundreds of seafood lovers who couldn’t participate in the sold-out celebrations in November.

The Holiday Baked Stuffed Maine Lobster Encore tasting is set for Tuesday, Dec. 10, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill on Coronado Island.

Once again, Bluewater chefs will stuff a sustainably harvested whole Maine lobster with a special shrimp and buttery panko-crumb stuffing and serve it with choice of New England or Manhattan clam chowder, two sides, unlimited fresh sourdough bread and a Bluewater Grill bib for $45, a $60 value.

Paired with the New England-inspired holiday feast will be a hand-picked Sauvignon Blanc from Oyster Bay in New Zealand.

“Our annual November Stuffed Lobster tasting was so popular, we felt we owed it to our regulars to repeat it in December,” explained Bluewater Grill co-founder Jimmy Ulcickas. “It has become a Bluewater tradition for both Thanksgiving and the holidays.”

The Bluewater monthly tasting events, hosted every second Tuesday, feature seasonal seafood specialty items paired with hand-selected wines or specialty draught beers. The events, which include roving commentary by Bluewater’s resident chefs and seafood experts, have become a popular monthly diversion for local seafood aficionados and Bluewater Grill’s large fan base.

Holiday revelers unable to attend the Dec. 10 reprise can still order Bluewater’s famous Holiday Baked Stuffed Main Lobster off the menu for the regular price through Jan. 2, 2020. The wine can then be added at Bluewater’s by-the-glass price.

Per Ulcickas, the promotion is consistent with Bluewater Grill’s mission to practice 100% sustainable purchasing. “The Maine lobster industry is the model of a well-managed fishery — ensuring that both the lobster resource and the environment are protected for generations to come. Maine harvesters have been environmentally conscious and ‘eco-friendly’ since long before it became fashionable. They harvest their lobsters the same careful way they have for over 125 years — by hand, one trap at a time — thus protecting the quality of their product and the marine environment.”
