It’s a record pop-up shop that also serves oysters and beer.

Little Creek Oyster Farm and Market is hosting “Vinyl Night” from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Thursdays this winter.

Here’s how it works: Dust off your favorite old (or contemporary!) records and bring them down to the Bootleg Alley shop. If you’re feeling brave, you’re free to put them on the turntable and introduce fellow customers to your tunes. (more…)

A few of my fondest summer memories as a child were spent sitting around a cooler full of ice watching my dad shuck clams with my uncles. He’d share a few clams here and there as he shucked, and I was one of the few females at the party who enjoyed a raw clam drenched in Tabasco sauce.

Once old enough to have the dexterity to use a clam knife, my father and uncles taught me how to shuck my own clams. I took pride in my ability to shuck and slurp them down. I feel as though shucking is a skill, sort of like juggling; not everyone knows how to do it, and people are usually impressed when you show them you can.  (more…)

The Little Creek Oyster Farm and Market in Greenport is spearheading a public education initiative to collaboratively build a submersible remote operated vehicle (or ROV) to study our marine ecosystem. (more…)
