Bertha is o-fish-ally sitting on the dock of the bay, and we want to give her – and all her 7,000 pounds – a proper welcome toast! At Ivar’s Acres of Clams, we’re now mixing up “The Aurora No ‘Mora”, which puts a drill bit twist on the classic mimosa and screwdriver cocktail. We start with Absolut Mandrin and orange juice, add a splash of Monin Tangerine Syrup and top it all off with Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut and an orange garnish. It’s yours for $8.50.
So come join us in the restaurant or in the Clam Digger’s Lounge to shell-ebrate the arrival of the world’s largest drill. In a few short months, once they’ve reassembled her 41 pieces, she’ll start her two-mile tunnel dig under downtown – and we’ve got a front row seat!
