Spring Clave Sat Dinner Options

How do people feel about a Clam Bake? Chatham Lobster Co will deliver fresh lobster / steamer / corn cooked traditionally with various sides.

Cost will be $30 per head.

Additional options TBD shortly.

clam bake sounds great, but where ?

As an FYI, the Hankie has grills out the back now behind the rooms

with a lot of people staying there it may be convenient.

Mark.

I spoke with the Hankie Mgmt and they gave us the green light

However it's susceptible to rain. Let's keep the options open for now...

Clam Bake

Sounds good to me but there may be others that would like something else. Other options TBD latter?

I have a call into the Goose (Wayside) across the street from the Squire. They have function rooms and sounded interesting but I need to speak to their function manager before it's an option.

No fixed menu, bar service, etc. You can order just a salad or a filet, and their steaks are excellent.

Wayside pricepoint for groups is ~$50 so I am going to guess it's off the options list. That would be private function room / cash bar inclusive MA tax and gratuity. Opinions welcome.

Wayside

Skip it !!!!!! If we did a 'Bake' could they also do steaks on grill for those that might not want Lobster & Clams but all the rest of the fix'ins (Not that I won't do Bake)? I would think that you could get a pretty good steak instead of Lobster & Clams and keep the price the same. Just thinking for those that might not want clam-bake. Price for the "Bake" is outstanding, much less than I thought it would be!

Pete -

I truly appreciate your opinion and I'm open to anything if people want to belly up to the barbeque.

Keep in mind that for years I managed the event, pre-paid and picked up the meat and fixings, cooked, even cleaned up afterwards. To do a cookout, nothing happens by itself, someone's got to take the bull by the horns and it was always me. Some guys like Dave Kopij directly contributed (the seared tuna was amazing) and people like yourself contributed wine which I savored thank you - but I am talking about General Management of the entire event.

Tell you what, if I am overwhelmed by volunteers (and I don't mean people asking at the time of the cookout if they can help flip burgers) then I would be willing to consider that option again but otherwise the extent of what I have time to offer is arrangement for a third party as above.

I surrender the floor to all volunteers....

BBQ

Juro, I was not saying that we should go back to the "old time BBQ' but wondering if the people that would put on the "Bake" could also have a grill available for cooking a steak, instead of the Lobster & Clams, for those that might want to go to the dinner but are not Lobster/Clam eaters. I personally am in favor of the "Bake". Sorry if my previous post was confusing. Let me know if there is something that I can help with.

Pete

Oh I see - absolutely, if we do the hankie outside thing anyone is free to fire up a grill and cook something they want for themselves definitely! The clambake thing is an idea for whoever wants to order it.

No rules just something that's local and memorable / opt in or out.
