If you haven’t already figured it out I am a sucker for seafood. I love clam chowder, especially from The Bville Diner…(it is the best, i swear!) I recently had a delicious seafood chowder at Blue Tusk, and I have made a point to mark my calendar for Hinerwadel’s Open Clam Bake.
Hinerwadel’s is cool, it’s available for private parties,…so basically you need to know someone who is throwing a clam bake…anyone interested in inviting me, you know where to find me. You can also buy fresh seafood there if you’re looking to throw a clam bake of your own.
Every year, however, Hinerwadel’s throws an open clam bake, for people who haven’t found that invite from a friend for their private clam bake. And every year, hundreds of people show up, and clams are served in quantities so large it makes your eyes bulge. There’s fried clams, raw clams, steamed clams, clam chowder…and for the non-seafood lover, there’s hotdogs, and their famous Salt Potatoes.
Presale tickets are $67.50 through August 9th…so get them quick before the price rises the day of the event to $72.50. They’re available only at Hinerwadel’s so you’ll have to drive out to North Syracuse to get your tickets, but trust me on this one…it’s worth every penny! The food is unlimited and there’s a lot of really fun events going on, like lawn games and live music.
Did I mention you get a free mug for going?!
If you’ve lived in Syracuse for a while and you’re looking for something to do August 10th from 1-6pm and you’ve never been to the Hinerwadel’s open clam bake…or if you’re new and you have never visited Hinerwadel’s…now is the time to try it out! This is going to be one heck of a party..and they’re going to have lots of clams! YUM!
Tip: If you wait until the day of the event to buy the ticket, it’s cash only at the door.
