Check out this Irish Pub and their crab races.

Don's Place is an Irish Pub that was established in 1933 and ran by the Kindreds for 40 years. Today, the Kindred's daughter Rachel Kessler and Jimmy Ash own Don's and are sticking with the traditions. Every week they have a Saturday Cookout starting at 11:00 AM serving ribeye, chicken, pork chop & porkie burger sandwiches. Along with the sandwiches they rotate between chili, gumbo & Irish Stew. Every day they serve frozen pizzas and popcorn. Ask the bartender what they have available that day.
