Does anyone know of a clambake in this area or have you hosted a clambake?

I grew up in the Cleveland area and this time of year (September/October) was filled with opportunities to attend clambakes. By the time I became interested in attending one, I had already moved to California and now I am very much wanting to attend a clambake! It seems that this food trend does not exist in the Bay Area or maybe I just cannot find them? Does anyone know of any clambakes in the Bay Area or Napa Valley? Or, if there are not public clambakes, has anyone ever hired a caterer to do a clambake for you? Would love to hear any ideas and thank you.

  1. Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay

    On this coast it is more crab events or oysters in the Point Reyes Area.

    1. Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City caters clambakes. If anyone would do a good job, it would be them.
