It's Clam Jam today downtown from noon to six. Here's organizer and 3rd & Ferry Fish Market owner Mike Pichetto to explain what a treat you're in for if you go check it out. Tell us in the comments section if you're planning on going, or if you went, what you thought.
"It's the second year for Clam Jam. We're expecting a great turnout--somewhere around 12,000 people or so. We have about 14 local restaurants participating with vending stands on the street. We have Leaf Cigar and Social Still sponsoring a cigar/cocktail lounge. Weyerbacher is sponsoring an oyster and beer pairing tent over in the parking lot on Third Street. We're vending Stockertown Beverage's beer right out in front of the restaurant, and we have a bar outside on the street as well. There's a kids' area down on the end of Ferry Street. Gym tiME from up in Forks is sponsoring it. They have activities running every two hours starting at noon, going through six. There's kids' food down there as well, and a face painter. "U U U" is the headlining band, and we have Uncle Rocco playing as well and Blue Heart's Revelry. After the festival at six, we have a party inside here at 3rd & Ferry. We have an emcee for the day, Baron Ambrosia, the culinary ambassador of the Bronx--he's an Emmy award winning TV personality--he was on the Cooking Channel for awhile. Just a great day, good food, great weather, and we're hoping for a great turnout."
