The Savage Volunteer Fire Company's Ladies' Auxiliary sponsors a crab cake dinner next Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the fire hall.
Adult diners will each feast on two luscious crab cakes, potato salad, coleslaw and rolls, washed down by coffee or tea with dessert.
Children will get only one crab cake, because adults are cruel!
Cost per meal is $8 per adult, $5 per child 6- to 12-years-old, and free to preschoolers.
The Fire Company's Social Hall is at 8925 Lincoln Street in Savage.
Tickets for the dinner will be sold at the door, and carryout is available for those who want to eat well, but watch "X-Files" Friday night.
