Cape House Clam Shack is now open in Bushwick


Cape House Clam Shack, c/o Gothamist

Gothamist paid them a visit and their verdict was “everything that has clams in it is good.”

Start with the soul-satisfying New England Clam Dip, a bowl of thick, chunky, and creamy dip, shavings of lemon zest on top, surrounded by extra-crunchy Cape Cod potato chips. I asked for hot sauce and mixed it in, and you should too. In fact, maybe they should just put bottles of the stuff at every table. Nothing fancy. Even (especially?)

This One Goes To Eleven: Weekly metal roundup

Darkthrone-Arctic-ThunderA week off for travel, and here we are, right back in the fire. Not that I’m complaining, of course, but good dark lord, a little rest for the wicked (so I can listen to these records more than once, mostly) would be nice.
