|It took 9 cords of wood and 2 fiery pits smoldering at 2000+ degrees plus a skillful crew from Rodney’s Oyster Bar to cook all of the lobsters, mussels, clams, sausages and corn-on-the-cob for the Clambake at Millennium Park Saturday night. It had begun much earlier in the day when both pits were filled with wood and set ablaze. An attentive attendant kept a close watch over the pits, defying the intense heat to continually rake the burning embers.|
Even the afternoon’s torrential rains couldn’t douse the inferno.
No one was lonesome that Saturday night.
