Just a taste from yesterday’s second annual celebrity crab-cracking contest at Fisherman’s Wharf, which I believe was broadcast on ESPN 12…

From KCBS:

At Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco Thursday, chefs were paired with local celebrities in a crab cracking contest for charity. The contest, sponsored by the Fisherman’s Wharf Community Benefit District, is now in its second year. Ten teams of two got cracking at #9 Fishermen’s Grotto, with defending champ Executive Sous Chef from Bistro Boudin, Misael Reyes winning for the second year.

The best part about the day’s events: San Francisco Board President David Chiu singlehandedly revived the phrase, “It’s on like Donkey Kong,” which had unfortunately started to slip in usage over the past couple of weeks.
