30th Anniversary Party

It's not a misprint. The North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission officially permitted the sale of malt beverages and unfortified wine at the Blue Crab Tavern on 4/20. A lot of change has occurred on this sandbar in thirty years. If you want to feel the unbridled spirit of a bygone era, this is the place to visit.

Argie is the dynamo that has tended the bar of this waterside flat top for well over 10,000 days. In fact, she's been bartending on the Outer Banks since 1984 - first at the Buoy 9 and then at The Creekside before she purchased it and renamed it Blue Crab.

Join us as we celebrate this auspicious occasion with complimentary BBQ, throwback pricing on draft beer and a live musical performance by The Yacht Dogs (7 - 10 pm).
