How many lobsters do you think you'd have to eat before you got sick of them?
Above see the Clam Lady who just shucked clams for us all day -- not fast enough, we kept telling her! Sister Lisa carries away her lobster dinner and her co-workers above stand over the day-long dice game that goes so well with seafood.
The annual Seafood Fest at the Polish American Community Center in Albany is a place to test that question. For $60 you get all the raw clams, oysters, chowder, shrimp, steamed claims, mussels, scallops wrapped in bacon and beer/soda and wine you can drink. Then they give you this giant lobster with clams casino, crab, sweet potato casserole and stuffed mushrooms. I think I might actually be sick of butter after this repast. One question? What's seafood got to do with Poland? I understand the Baltic Sea touches a small portion of the country, but shouldn't this be a job for the Italian Benevolent Society in town?
