Operation Desert Clambake 2013 ($20pp) - Independence Day!

Operation Desert Clambake has returned!! Lets celebrate the summer and the nation's birthday with a seafood clambake feast!

All the seafood is being flown in directly from Maine.  We did this up great last year and so we're doing it once again!
































Please bring a bottle of Wine or Beer and whatever else you want to contribute to the feast.

I'm going to do it up right, with a large picnic table, some banana leaves!

No Forks or Knives allowed, eat with your fingers and feast!

Bring your swimsuit and a towel over because we'll hop in the pool after dinner if we so choose.

Cost pp is $20.00 to help cover the food costs.

The New England clam bake is a traditional method of cooking foods, especially seafood such as lobster,[1] mussels, crabs,[1] steamers, and quahogs. The seafood is often supplemented by sausages, potatoes,[1] onions, carrots, corn on the cob,[1] etc. Clam bakes are usually held on festive occasions along the coast of New England.

    Hey Steven, I leave the following morning for Alaska, so I was going to change my RSVP to "no" but I don't want to leave you hanging since you already paid for everything. Is there a waiting list? I'd love to free up my spot, but like I said, I just don't want to be a bailer...
