Neptune Oyster or Drink on a Friday night, insane?

Coming to Boston, tagging along with my spouse who is attending a conference.

We have two nights in the city, from NYC, and one is already earmarked for Craigie on Maine.

Is it sheer folly to do:

- Lobster rolls & fried clams at Neptune Oyster in the North End if the earliest we can get there is 6:30pm on a Friday night

- Drinks at Drink afterwards (whenever that is--8, 9)? I realize this is a healthy walk or a cab ride away.

Would you flip them? Skip one or another?

Husband loves lobster rolls (especially the buttery kind) and cocktails. We've heard great things about Drink. I'd like to try Eastern Standard too but the food menu seems kind of similar to lots of places in NYC.
