Hi Twisties,

All great questions... I'm responding on my iphone so i may be brief.

The clambake menu is "linked" in my inital post. It is a seafood dominate menu with lobster clams mussels chowder... For those who are not fans of seafood, they also offer a bbq chicken or eggplant option. The fosters link shows how the food is prepared onsite in custom made giant steamers. I expect this meal to be very good all the way around and something unique to this UN that would be remembered.

If we don't go with the clambake, the campground will cater a bbq with ribs chicken hamburgers hot dogs and a couple sides and desert. I don't have the menu on hand but Woodie could expand on this for me. I expect this meal to be good but more on the standard side..., not going to write
home about it but boy was the ride up Mt Washington fantastic kinda thing.


Woodie and Spyder. Anything to add as i may not be helping a very good question.

Same for the BBQ option?
Need to specify ahead of time? (Some years we have had to.)


Hi Ken

Yes, we will want to get some sense as what everyone will want. So we know what to order.

I want to sort out the clambake option first although early poll results show that it doesn't make sense. Let me give it the week to see if the scales tip a lot more towards yes.

Cheers!

Ken: (non-bbq options) I don't know. Yet.
Twisties: Comparative menus
BBQ:
Pork Ribs 1 rack
Chicken Breast 1 breast
Potato Salad 6 oz
Rolls 1 Roll
Dessert 1 slice
Soda/Water 1 each

Clambake:
Clam chowder (New England style of course!)
Steamed clams/mussels
Lobster or 1/2 BBQ chicken or vegetarian plate
Corn on the cob
Red potatoes
Onions
Blueberry Crumb Cake

I will tell you that Fosters comes highly recommended, is very well known, and catering IS their business. Think of it like a Hawaiian luau...it's not just the food, it's the fire pit, the 1/2 day of cooking it, etc. Not your typical BBQ.

Good point on verifying the BBQ.....

A "traditional" BBQ is a whole different ballgame depending on which corner of the country you are in. A southern BBQ ain't a Texas BBQ, and neither can be compared to anything north of the Mason-Dixon. Hell, some people around here say they are having BBQ and when you show up they hand you a sloppy joe. Sometimes it be just down right discraceful grin

FWIW.....I voted NO yesterday, but as soon as I saw the word steamed mussels this morning my mouth started watering.

Just so I'm clear, I'm with Jan on this. I was just having some fun with my seafood haters comment. The way I read the menu was that if lobster was in, chicken was out.

I don't want to ruin the party for everyone else. Give me a piece of chicken and I'll be happy. You guys can eat all the nasty water dwellers you like. I'll watch and cringe.

I'm not saying there are too many men in the kitchen grin

But, I am getting hungry just reading this thread.

$1.00 says we'll be playing with the shells, claws, etc

Thanks for the info. I'm not gonna vote. I'll go with whatever choice the group makes. I wouldn't touch the clams/mussels or clam chowder, but can find an entree I can eat either way. I might even brave the lobster.... eek ... if it goes that way.

Appreciate all the work and bringing us the choice.

That's a sucker bet if you saw the pictures of the last dinner with Jacqueline and Richard....

I think the hush puppy catapult worked pretty well!

Hi Paul!
Count both myself and Georgi in. I called to make sure that there was enough offered on the menu without wheat, so Georgi can actually eat with us. Sounds great!
Mussels, clams, lobster, MMMM! We will go with the seafood!!
