John Stamos finds 'true love' in Ocean City

The Baltimore Sun

Move over Aunt Becky. Uncle Jesse found "true love" in Ocean City this weekend.

John Stamos, who played the lovable goofball uncle to the infant Olsen twins in "Full House" and is promoting his new rom-com, "My Man is a Loser," posted a picture of a mountain of hard-shell crabs to Instagram on Sunday. The caption: "Found true love in Ocean City MD."

Stamos, who also plays guitar and drums, was in the area performing with The Beach Boys. The band played in New Jersey on Saturday night and Delaware on Sunday, and has shows in Lancaster, Pa., on Monday and Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, according to its website.

In his new film, Stamos, 50, plays a suave, Will-Smith-in-"Hitch"-type playboy who tries to teach his two married friends how to win back their bored wives. It premiered in theaters Friday, before Stamos hit the beach for some of Maryland's famous, J.O. Spice-covered crustaceans.

The Crab Bag, at 130th Street and Coastal Highway, served up the crab dinner to Stamos. The restaurant was voted "best crabs" in Ocean City in The Sun's "Best of OC" poll in May.

Correction: An earlier version of this story mistook the seasoning on Stamos' crabs. The Crab Bag uses J.O. Spice seasoning. The Sun regrets the error.
