Casino, crabs and cops — all in one night. The San Mateo Police Officers’ Association is holding its annual Crab Feed Friday, Feb. 21 at the San Mateo Elks Lodge 6 p.m. to midnight. This is the fifth year the association has invited the public to break bread and dance the night away with the officers who serve the community. For the first time, the event will include a casino night fundraiser to assist the association in donating to thousands of charitable organizations. Tickets are $60 per person, $550 for a table of 10 or for $250 businesses or individuals can sponsor a casino table for the evening. The event has sold out every year so people are encouraged to reserve a seat quickly by contacting association members. For more information contact Jeanine Luna at (650) 522-7522 ext. 551, jluna@cityofsanmateo.org or Lupe Mejia at gmejia@cityofsanmateo.org.

The sale of the Burlingame Post Office could be affected by Congress’ omnibus appropriations bill, which states the U.S. Postal Service needs to put a moratorium on sales of historic post offices while it waits on the inspector general’s report and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation reports. This stems from some concerns about USPS ignoring federal preservation guidelines.

USPS representative Gus Ruiz said it’s too premature to tell how this would affect the Burlingame sale.
