The scenario: It’s a Monday evening. You’re already burnt on the work week. Cooking is not an appealing prospect.

You want: Dungeness crab. Lots of it—enough to sate you and your dining mate.

You don’t want: To spend more than $30.

You go to: Monsoon or Monsoon East.

Because: Over the weekend the Capitol Hill stalwart and its newer Eastside sibiling began offering a mighty attractive Sunday-and-Monday-night deal: Two can feast on a two-pound crab and mango-papaya salad for $28. And take 30 percent off any bottle of wine.

We won’t crab about that bill (har har).
