Bay area eateries are gearing up for National Clam Chowder Day by offering specials sure to get locals and tourists alike inside their doors this weekend.
In San Francisco, for example, Boudin Bakery is celebrating on Friday with a buy-one get-one-free dish.
To take advantage of the discount, consumers are required to surf by their web site on-or-after Wednesday, and print out a coupon to guarantee a stab at their scrumptious clam chowder in-a-bread-bowl menu item.
Meanwhile - the 30th Annual Clam Chowder Cook-off and Festival kicks off in Santa Cruz on the boardwalk - Saturday (February 26th).
Admission is free!
But, tasting kits are priced at 8 bucks a shot.
Over 85 chefs will be offering up tasty dishes to sample!
Spenger's Grott - in Berkeley - will celebrate on Friday between the hours of 11:30 and 10 p.m.
A cup of their award-winning chowder may be scoffed down for the lowly-sum of $1.21.
See 'ya there!
