Here is a story from last year, yes, we repurposed it. Still on the fence about going to Clayton this year? Really? The 1940’s year thing, the chance to see one of a kind boats isnt’ enough? OK, how about food! Beer?
Thanks to the great folks from the Antique Boat Museum for giving us all some places to enjoy while there. Now. Could we pace our selves so we are not all there at the same time. First lets all start with Breakfast at the Koffee Kove, we have eaten there a bunch of times and its great.
Go right to the flea market. Buy everything you see that you like. Cause, you may not see it again. We all know that lesson. There will be some fun t shirts and such. Its really a great shopping experience, and the short walk through town is great. Hungry again? Lunch at Bella’s, beers and wings at O’Brien’s, cocktails at the Channelside, dinner at The Clipper Inn.
If you need any last minute items while here, the team at Reinman’s Hardware will take care of you. No really. This place is great and you can walk there from the show.
Make sure your Towboat US membership is current and our friends over at Seaway Marine (local Towboat US vendor) will give you a tow or bring you a gas can if you run into trouble on the River.
Now of course you can just skip the entire show, and just head over to the Wood Boat Brewery right at the Show ( Did we mention that?) and just waste your day away drinking and eating amazing Wood Fired Pizza and some fresh Brew. Maybe it’s the diet I am on that is making this all sound so attractive? Mmmmmm, beer and pizza all day…
We are officially on the road today. hopefully we will make it Friday morning. Kent O. Smith is there today as is Phil Andrews. Lets get this party started!
