Authentic New England Clambake Sat. Aug. 13 in Nahant

Join us for this extraordinary opportunity!

On Saturday, August 13, on Canoe Beach at East Point, Nahant (location of the Northeastern Marine Science Center), we will have an authentic New England clambake.

Under the direction of Joe Ayers, clambake organizer extraordinaire and Northeastern professor at the Marine Science Center, we will cook lobsters and steamer clams using traditional techniques.

In short, we will dig a pit, fill it with rocks and cord wood, light it and let it burn down. We then cover it with fresh seaweed and place frames containing lobsters, steamer clams, codfish, salmon, Fenway franks, corn on the cob, sweet onions and potatoes. We then cover this with a tarp soaked in seawater, seal the edges and let it steam. Hopefully, we will be able pull this off for $20-25/person (children negotiable), with an additional infusion of BSLUG funds from our coffers.

For those of you who want this real experience, it will be an all day affair. Otherwise, dinner will probably be ready around 6:30 p.m. Pray for great weather!

All family and friends are welcome. RSVP DEADLINE SAT. JULY 23
