ORONO, Me. — “Everything Lobster,” an old-fashioned clambake and special presentation, both featuring lobster, is scheduled for Warren’s Lobster House in Kittery on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Members of the public are invited to the event, hosted by the Lobster Institute of the University of Maine and Warren’s Lobster House.
There will be two seatings on the Warren’s heated deck, one at 4:30 p.m. and one at 6:30 p.m. The first seating will feature the clambake, with representatives of the Lobster Institute going from table to table with live lobsters, telling diners all they want to know about the “king of crustaceans”. The 6:30 seating will also include the show and tell about lobsters. Following dinner the Lobster Institute will present “In Their Own Words: A History of the Lobster Industry.” which features a timeline of milestones in the industry highlighted by quotes and video clips from oral history interviews conducted by the Institute with veteran lobstermen and their families.
Dinner will start with a trip to Warren’s salad bar, which features over 60 items. Then, the traditional clambake will include clam chowder, steamed clams or mussels, Maine lobster, barbequed chicken, watermelon, and Warren’s signature “strawberry longcake,” with plenty of whipped cream.
Those who are interested should call Warren’s Lobster House at (207) 439-1630 to make reservations, which are required because seating is limited. Cost for the evening is $29.99 and covers dinner, beverage, tax and gratuity — and the presentation. Five dollars of the cost will be donated to the Lobster Institute to assist it in its research and educational outreach activities. The mission of the Lobster Institute is to protect and conserve the lobster and enhance lobstering as an industry and a way of life.
