When I was younger (and still to this day)
God Save The Clam!
The Queen’s Jubilee is almost upon us, and what better way to show our support and let our patriotic guilt subside (slightly) for one weekend than celebrating with a *ahem* New *ahem* England food event although with an old England twist. A clam bake, I’m told, is a method of cooking where seafood is baked over hot stones covered in seaweed – resulting in a steamed ‘seashore picnic’, so who better to host such an event than Soho barbeque darlings, Pitt Cue Co and pop-up seafood experts, Rock Lobsta.
God Save The Clam is a punk inspired British interpretation of the Clam Bake taking place over the Jubilee weekend (31st May – 3rd June) on a rooftop overlooking London Fields. Expect buckets of seafood (clams, cockles, mussels, crayfish and crab claws), beach huts, a sun deck, ice cream bar (don’t miss the bacon butterscotch sauce) and lubrication in the form of Meantime beer and Jose Cuervo Tradicional tequila cocktails.
Tickets are £39 (plus service fee) which INCLUDES a cocktail or beer, starter, Clam Bake and ice cream sundae. Book your time slot from God Save The Clam now.
But if you don’t want to shell out (be glad that’s my only pun here), you can still join the festivities without a ticket and check out the Shack Snack Bar, that will be serving a selection of corn dogs, Po Boy pork n shrimp sandwiches and blue lobster and crackling popcorn aka Smurf n Turf.
