Two Men and a Clam Rake

Antiques may be prized for higher-quality steel, but custom-made rakes are the best. Garden tools, such as pitchforks, can easily be converted to catch clams. Thin tines work best to find hard clams in rocky bottoms, and thicker tines suit soft clams in sandy or muddy bottoms.

The Petulant Wino

The place lives up to its name. It’s quirky, hip and relaxed, and on a summer Friday evening buzzing with wine-region visitors and local food aficionados alike. Wine industry types were at the bar unwinding; any residual petulance from the workweek didn’t last long.
