For my 60th I took eleven friends to the seen of my youth on the warm Saturday of 3/11. First a van cruise to Revere, down Shirley Ave, home of Floating Rock (a former dry cleaner) and Tacos Liputa (a former Jewish bakery). Didn't stop since this was nostalgia tour, but did go to Bianchi's for pizza, the perfect slice stop. Sat in one of the pavilions and ate while I told stories. Then drove through some of my neighborhoods and then on to the Clam Box Ipswich where they were expecting us. Since it was a warm Saturday, the line was out the door at 7:30 but the staff managed to put together tables for a party of twelve. We had chowder, clams both large bellies and regular, oysters, lobster rolls, fries, rings, and slaw. Everything was delicious. I know that there are those that like the large belly clams, but the consensus was that the smaller ones tasted fresher and more delicate. The staff was very friendly and helpful and let us stay until we were done. We then went on to the Agawam Diner to pick up pies for the Birthday boy. All in all a fun time with some good eats.
