Lobster - So Delicious, It Gets 2 National Holidays!

Happy National Lobster Day! Those of you that follow food holidays might be thinking, "Hey, that's supposed to happen on June 15!" and actually, you wouldn't be wrong. Apparently, lobster is so amazing that it has earned itself 2 different days of celebration each year! Here at JB Hook's, we sort of celebrate it every day of the year by serving the best lobster at the Lake of the Ozarks on our regular menu. Here is a look at how this delicious seafood ended up with more than one nationally recognized holiday.

New England Wants More
In 2015, two senators from Maine lobbied to have the official National Lobster Day moved from June 15 to September 25. They claimed that the change was needed because it "underscores the significant role that lobsters play in supporting the economies of coastal communities across the country." You see, September 25 falls during New England's peak harvesting season for lobster. This is when the supply is highest, which means there's a lot more U.S. lobster to go around.

June 15 actually falls toward the end of Canada's lobster season. That means that when you celebrate National Lobster Day on June 15, your lobster is less likely to come from our nation, but instead travel from our neighbor's up north. Still delicious, but not really a reason for us to celebrate here. As for why June 15 was chosen to begin with, the people researching it could find no actual reason, so a permanent change is unlikely to face any resistance.

Of course, everyone at our seafood & steak restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks thinks that both holidays should remain on the calendar. It is most definitely a delicacy worth celebrating more than once!

We serve only the freshest, most savory lobster on the menu at JB Hook's, featuring Australian lobster tail. Here's a look at a few ways we lovingly prepare it for you. Pasta entrees are served with a choice of soup or salad. All other entrees come with a choice of soup or salad and a side dish.
