Rhode Island loves its clamcakes. We have our favorite clam shacks. We eat them dipped in chowder or drenched in hot sauce or straight up with a splash of salt.

David Stone has taken our fascination to new heights. David is the author of Clamcake Summer, a one-man attempt to sample every clamcake in Rhode Island. He will join us for the Clamcake Crawl through South County.

We will try clamcakes at four different shops. Don't be left behind! You'll be talking about this one at your next beach party!

We'll all meet at George's of Galilee, 250 Sand Hill Cove Road, Narragansett, RI 02882 and will make two stops In Galilee. We'll meet at the next location for two more stops. No transportation is provided.

What's included:

  • Clamcake chat with David Stone
  • Clamcakes at each stop
  • Two glasses of wine or beer
  • Two soft drinks
  • Chowder
