A Hunka-Hunka Burning Feast (Posted On: Monday, July 27, 2009)

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.     

Approximately 350 festive Elvis fans drove, walked in or grabbed a seat on the shuttle bus for the event.  And they were not disappointed.  Besides all of the amazing food served up by Shirwood Foods (ribs were also available), the legendary Lincolns performed to the highly appreciative audience.  Two Elvis Tribute Artist Champions, James Gibb and Pete Irwin brought the spirit of Elvis to the large tent.  Gibb kept the crowd bopping in their seats by singing the title song from Elvis’ 1967 film “Clambake”.

No one was lonesome that Saturday night.
