Fresh lobster, frozen, now what?

I was just gifted a fresh Caribbean lobster caught by my friend. It was put into the freezer. Now what do I do? It's whole and rather large.

LobsterFilter: How to pull off a lobster boil for twenty+ people?

On a bit of a whim, my brother who can barely cook a cheese sandwich decided to have about twenty live lobsters shipped out for everyone who is coming to my other brother's bachelor party this Saturday. We're all very much from flyover country (Minnesota), and backyard steaming of lobsters isn't really in our repertoire. How do I help ensure it doesn't turn into a very expensive mess? [more inside]

Mmm ... cheap lobster

Unlike Maine lobstermen, I'm happy that the price of lobster is falling. But where is the best place to eat lobster out near Washington DC at a reasonable price? All the places I can see are swanky joints that are crazy expensive.

How can I make giant, durable, light-weight lobster claws?

I'm doing a road rallye in New England next weekend, and my team is turning my '85 Saab 900 hatchback into a giant lobster. I will be putting 4-foot long claws onto the front of it, and actuators inside will actually make the claws move. So, there will be a metal frame/skeleton at the heart of it, but I want to encase that in realistic looking giant lobster claws. What material will look good, be cheap, and hold up for a day on the road? [more inside]
