The origin of the clambake was not  the 1967 Elvis movie bearing the same namesake. In fact, it all started when the resourceful Pilgrims picked up the technique from Native Americans steaming soft-shell crabs on the rocks – kinda like an early day Food Network.

Roll down your pant legs and put away the bucket and shovel. An urban clambake is as close as Fulton’s on the River, no manual labor required. From 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Tuesday September 1st,  Fulton’s veranda will be transformed into an authentic clambake atmosphere, complete with an all you can eat clam-bake and two Hoegaarden beers for just 22 bucks.

Menu items like Baked Stoneneck Clams with brown butter bread crumbs, roasted garlic, fresh parsley, horseradish hollandaise, Sweet New Queens corn on the cob and Jalapeño-Wisconsin white cheddar corn bread with honey butter will be served on family-style picnic tables where guests can sip and nosh while taking in the Chicago river views.

In addition, Fulton’s will offer tasty drink specials for throughout the night for all you sailors out there.  Look for $4 beers, $6 cocktails and $8 glasses of wine. With lively music, great food and killer views, Fulton’s clambake is the perfect way to wrap up another unforgettable Chicago summer!

Don’t clam up! This is the LAST bake of the summer.

A few years ago, having to get up and go to work the next morning did not stop me from going out until 3am. But these days, I just can’t do it. That doesn’t mean I won’t go out on school nights, I just have to do it earlier so I can get up and get to work at 9am relatively spry. The good folks over at Good for Party and sOMSq3Ckkm2n9m802bUbDVs0o1_400Crimson Lounge have created a party just for me and my kind who work in the Loop and River North area, “…. Happy Ending.”

This Thursday, May 21st is the launch party. The party will feature DJs Merk_1 and Eric Hurlburt of Funky Couture playing hip-hop, soul, and house. There are also $3 wine, $3 champagne, and $3 beer specials, 1/2 price food specials off the Bin36 menu, and its totally free to get in. That’s the kind of after work party I’m talking about. Plus, Crimson Lounge is right on the border of River North and the Loop, making it an ultra-convenient location for all you people who work downtown, 333 N. Dearborn to be exact (inside the Hotel Sax). I think its going to be a blast!
