As I'm sure you all know, seafood is pretty much bae at this point. I've appealed to the masses to get Red Lobster to return to Montreal. I've helped guide you to delicious sushi spots, time and time again; seafood is pretty much one of my top 5 favourite things to eat, and if I could, I'd eat some kind of seafood dish for every single meal, and then snack on some grilled octopus. Now that I think about it, my love of seafood is probably more like an obsession. But whatever. We can't all be perfect.
But do you know what is perfect? Lobster. And do you know what's even better than that? A whole entire festival dedicated to what is quite possibly the world's best food. That's right, friends.
Montreal's Lobster Clam Jam is going down this May 22, 2016 for the fourth year in a row. This year, the outdoor festival will be taking place along the Lachine Canal, and will feature 40 Montreal restaurants; wine, beer, mojito, and coffee bars; and a bunch of different dessert sections. And while they've got some awesome lobster and seafood dishes lined up, the Montreal restaurants featured in this year's Lobster Clam Jam will also be serving up meat and poultry dishes, too.
Sounds too good to be true? Well, don't worry, friends. This is very much a reality. Admission is going for $40 or $65; $40 gets you 3 coupons, $65 gets you 9, and all food and drink items at this festival are valued at 1 - 2 coupons each.
Oh, and the best part? A proceed of all the admission costs go to the Starlight Children's Foundation. So, you know, you can eat good, have a good time, and do some good, too. For more information, check out their Facebook event page, or go here to get your tickets.
