    If you're going Mendo for its January food-stravaganza, consider a package that address your crabbiest longings. The Mendocino County Crab, Wine and Beer Festival is on from Jan. 19 through 29, 2018.

That is, if you daydream of a large-scale, multi-town food festival that focuses on crab cakes and seafood chowders and crab-laden pastas and everything else that can be created with crab, as well as some bright local wines and craft beers. For dreaming of crab-yummy times is almost like sleeping with the crabs, but no flights of foodie fancy shall be required if you're around Mendocino County from Friday, Jan. 19 through Sunday, Jan. 28.

That's where you'll "...set out pots, scan the horizon for whales, and ideally pull in up to 10 crabs." Have your crab-focused daydreams ventured beyond crab cakes and cioppino, to actually learning how crabs are procured? This is your inn, your adventure, and you going to the source, to learn more. The kick-off price is $720 for the package, and that's Sunday through Thursday, but do give the Little River Inn a ring for more information on this oh-so-Mendo offer. There's a...

    2018 CRAB & WINE PASSPORT... package, too, at the inn, so be sure to research all, depending upon where your culinary cravings happen to be.
