Thursday Sips & Nibbles


I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events.

1) On Wednesday February 25, in honor of National Clam Chowder Day, The Blue Ox restaurant in Lynn will donate a portion of the proceeds from each bowl of clam chowder purchased during dinner service to My Brother’s Table, a local non-profit that serves nourishing meals to the hungry and delivers meals to home-bound individuals and at-risk seniors seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Created by Chef Matt O’Neil, The Blue Ox’s Clam Chowder is twist on the classic New England version that’s packed with fresh local clams, crisp Applewood-smoked bacon and laced with just a touch of Tabasco for a slight kick. Perfect for clam chowder aficionados and guests looking to keep warm during wicked winter weather, The Blue Ox’s Clam Chowder is a delicious way to celebrate everyone’s favorite food holiday, while keeping the needs of hungry neighbors top of mind.

COST: $10 (tax and gratuity not included)
