The Vanderbilt Museum’s Fourth Annual Clam Bake is set for Saturday, July 18, from 6:00 to 10:00 in the Celebration Tent on the Great Lawn overlooking Northport Bay and Long Island Sound. As a special treat, Clam Bake guests are invited to a private Planetarium show at 5:00 p.m.
The menu offers a wide menu of 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. Deejay Mark James will provide music for listening and dancing.
Tickets are $100 per person (Members, call 631-854-5579 to purchase tickets for $90) or $750 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. The Clam Bake is an important fund-raising event and proceeds benefit the museum’s education programs.
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.
