Eat Maryland crab meat to win prizes

Eat Maryland crab meat and win a prize.

Throughout September, diners who eat at restaurants participating in Maryland's True Blue program can win a pair of tickets to the Mermaid's Kiss Oyster Fest, an after-hours celebration of Maryland seafood on Oct. 3 at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Launched this spring by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the True Blue program allows restaurants serving DNR-verified Maryland blue crab products to use a special logo in marketing or advertising the product to diners.  

To enter the contest, participants must upload a clear photograph of their itemized receipt from a True Blue certified restaurant or seafood retailer to the Maryland Seafood Facebook before Sept. 30. The receipt must show the name of the establishment, the date, and the crabmeat purchased.

The DNR will award a pair of tickets to the person who submits the most entries throughout the month, as well as the individual who patronizes the greatest variety of True Blue partners. Full rules and instructions about the contest are posted on there as well.

Participating True Blue restaurants and retailers are listed on the DNR's website.
