But orders must be placed in advance and received by Friday, Oct. 25.

The lobsters approximately weigh 1.5-pounds each and sell for $25 apiece. The lobsters will be flown into San Francisco from Maine and transported to Sonoma. Lobsters can be picked up outside the Chamber of Commerce either live or cooked.
