Save the date: 6th Annual Quahog Day on June 21, 2014
The Cape's beloved hard-shelled mollusk - "Doug" - has been the peninsula's little weather soothsayer for the past four years! Each year on the First Day of Summer, Cape Codders wait in anticipation as Doug whispers his weather prediction into the ear of Johnny Quahog, also widely known as the Secretary General of The Quahog Republic. Come be a part of history in the making!
On Friday, June 21, 2013 at the Lighthouse Inn in West Dennis, people from all over gathered to get the inside scoop on the Cape Cod Quahog’s Prognostication for Summer 2013 at the 5th annual Quahog Day. His verdict? 66 days of beach weather and 25 great shopping days!
This year's emcee was Ben Sargent, the host of Cooking Channel’s "Hook, Line & Dinner!" Ben, a native New Englander whose first real job was scooping ice cream on Cape Cod, has appeared on Food Network’s "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" and on Cooking Channel’s "United Tastes of America." His new cookbook "The Catch: Sea-to-Table Recipes, Stories & Secrets" is on salein July!
