On one hand, we were exited to welcome mudbugs back to our plates and bellies for the season after an unusually cold winter. On the other, we were somewhat flabbergasted by the prices and the short supply of our favorite springtime indulgence.

Following various restaurant Facebook pages is a good way to find out if a certain spot is out for the day, but who has time to call and shop around for the best deals?
