The Vanderbilt’s fifth annual Clam Bake is set for Saturday, July 23, from 6:00 to 10:00 in the Celebration Tent on the Great Lawn overlooking Northport Bay and Long Island Sound. This important fund-raising event benefits the Museum’s education programs.
The menu offers seafood-lovers’ favorites – from whole steamed lobsters to mussels and clam chowder – to barbecued chicken, burgers, hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob, plus wine, beer and soda. Glass Bottom Soul will play live music for listening and dancing.
Tickets are $100 per person (Members, $90) or $850 for a table of 10, and can be purchased online at vanderbiltmuseum.org, or call 631-854-5579, Monday through Friday, 10:00-4:00.
Participants are invited to bring their nine irons and take part in a chip-shot contest in honor of Willie Vanderbilt’s original estate golf course. The player who gets closest to the pin wins the pot.
