For the month of August, Silver Linings is giving away a free can of Old Bay seafood seasoning with every purchase made online.
Many of our local customers already know and love Old Bay. But since the launch of our website, we have new customers from other parts of country who have never seen the iconic yellow, red and blue can. We wanted to share with them the distinctive spice that has become a Chesapeake Bay tradition.
Crabs were so plentiful in Maryland in the 1940s that they were offered for free in bars to patrons. In order to boost beverage sales, spicy Old Bay was developed to keep customers thirsty, and boy did it work! Eating crabs covered in Old Bay, with a nice cold beer, is an important part of the Chesapeake experience.
