[FHCx306] National Calzone Day/National Deep Fried Clams Day/National Vinegar Day

IT’S NATIONAL CALZONE DAY, NATIONAL DEEP FRIED CLAMS DAY, AND NATIONAL VINEGAR DAY!

Riffing on this Ben Wyatt from Parks n Rec thing… if we were to make a restaurant to celebrate folded pizza, it would be specifically diet-friendly and located in areas nearby Los Angeles or San Diego. It would be called the Local LoCal Low-Cal Calzone Zone.

But for reals. Calzone Day was just established recently. Specifically, it was petitioned by Minsky’s Pizza on their 40th anniversary. So hooray for them!

Today also celebrates something we were worried about finding. There are always days like that. Sea Salt, which we visited for fried scallops, closed for the season at the end of October. Our next best bet was a place called Mucci’s, which is known for their deep fried – wait for it – pizza. Yeah. We were excited to see they also had clam fritti. But when we called at 4:45 to ensure they had our item, we were aghast to find they didn’t have any! As of November 1st, today was a menu change, and they don’t have ’em anymore.

We were in luck that a local joint by SP‘s old apartment had the goods for us. Here’s Mac’s Fish and Chips.

The menu on a white board. Too quaint not to share.

“We don’t have soda. We have POP!” Thanks, Minnesota. SP approves.

SP got half clams and half cod. Mmmmm those clam strips were AMAZING.

AK went full-blown Minnesotan and got Walleye. Probably was from Lake Wobegon.

And what’s this? Malt vinegar to have with our fish n chips? Such that we can enjoy National Vinegar Day? Perfect!

Despite the troubles, today was a success. We could’ve clammed up, but we got out of our shell and had an adventure.

Tomorrow is National Deviled Egg Day.
