Joe's Stone Crab opens for the 2012-2013 season.
Hallelujah! The summer is officially over. How do we know when the weather is still in the 80's every day and we still can't get the mail without applying SPF 50?

Joe's Stone Crab is officially open for business today.

The iconic restaurant, which opened in 1913 (that's two years before the city of Miami Beach was even incorporated for you history buffs out there), will resume dinner service today, October 11 at 5 p.m.

Doors open at 4 p.m. so you can put your name on the list and grab a drink, since Joe's doesn't take reservations.

Joe's Take Away also opens at 5 p.m. tonight.

This season marks two celebrations for the restaurant, which has been in the same family for generations. In January, 2013, the restaurant will begin its 100th anniversary celebration, with a special edition wine, commemorative bibs, food specials, and events.

Also new for this year is the Joe's Stone Crab memories page, a virtual scrapbook where fans of the restaurant are invited to share pictures and stories. Reading through them is pretty fascinating with people from all walks of life living, eating, laughing, celebrating, and (in one case) going into labor at the eatery.

That's one restaurant with history.

Why go to Joe's and pay astronomical prices for stone crabs.?? 2 blocks down the street there is a small place called My Ceviche where they serve fresh claws almost 40% less.
