Westport, CT – Organizers of the New England Chowdafest are proud to announce they will be holding another “Clambake to Go” effort on Sunday, July 26. “We are beyond surprised about how well our initial Taste of Summer effort went,” said Jim Keenan from Chowdafest. “The number of emails and texts surpassed even our wildest expectations and so many asked for us to do it again. We really can't believe how happy everyone was about our 'Clambake to Go' effort. It really gave participants the taste of summer we've all been missing."
Each clambake meal includes a meaty and banded 1.5lb lobster, clams, mussels, sausage, potatoes, and corn on the cob, plus it's all contained in one pot that the customer gets to keep. Cooking is easy and quick as you just add either water, beer or wine to each pot, which takes between just 20 and 40 minutes to steam depending on how many clambakes you order.
“Clambakes To Go” can only be picked up in Westport, CT at The Westport Hub on Sunday, July 26 during available pick-up times chosen by the customer, as was done in the initial pick-up event. Dinners are just $42 each and only available online at www.ClambakeToGo.com up until the cutoff date of Thursday, July 23.
“Given the unbelievable response to our last effort and how much people enjoyed the clambakes, we might sell out, so the best thing to do is order early. It's such an easy and delicious way to experience summer, and a welcome break from the pandemic."
Customers are encouraged to bring a cooler, if they have one, to help keep their clambake meals cool until they cook them later in the day. They are also reminded to bring their ticket so it can be quickly scanned and their order brought to their car.
While supplies last, this effort includes two Summer Ales with each meal, compliments of both Sam Adams, and The Blind Rhino Restaurant in Black Rock. You can either cook with the beer or drink it. The folks at Polar Beverages are also anxious to provide everyone with a new slim can of one of their summertime flavored seltzers, as well. Adding another sweet benefit to ordering early is the great news that Cabot's Creamery will, again, provide its delicious butter for your lobster, clams, mussels, potatoes, and corn of the cob provided in your clambake. Of course, you'll still receive your lobster bibs, wet naps and “Shuckneer” lobster tool.
