Well, we aren't saying that clambakes are the answer to everything, but we like to think they can help in some way.

Next month someone will earn a Clambake Dinner for 8 courtesy of B&M Catering Company.

For the 2nd year in a row, B&M is sponsoring the grand prize for the winner of the Outrunning Homelessness 5k Road Race to be held on April 27 at DCR's Borderland State Park in Easton, MA.

"Outrunning Homelessness" is a fundraising event to support School on Wheels of Massachusetts.  The School on Wheels mission is to educate children impacted by homelessness by providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring so children can reach their full potential.This fundraiser will raise money to help School on Wheels provide tutors, backpacks and school advocacy for kids experiencing homelessness.

The winner of last year's Outrunning Homelessness 5K was Kevin O'Donnell of Canton, MA with a time of 19:47.

Kevin took home a "Fresh Lobster" beach blanket and a gift certificate for his B&M clambake feast.

The 2012 Outrunning Homelessness event had over 370 runners and walkers.  The event drew more than twice the number of participants and more than doubled the revenue of the 2011 event to achieve a record total of nearly $21,000.

B&M Catering is proud to help out this worthy cause.  We hope to see you there.

Our beach blankets are being spotted from Maine to Cape Cod.  Our fans may have enjoyed one of our famous New England Clambakes or an outrageous Pig Roast  - but they are always happy to receive "The Fresh Lobster" on a beach blanket, too.

We have even seen our beach blanket used to keep a fan's legs warm at a recent Bruins hockey game.

Every month we choose a new Facebook Fan to enjoy a "The Fresh Lobster" Beach Blanket.

Historic Venue - Beautiful Details

The event will be held at the Governor Henry Lippitt House. 

gov lippit houseThe New York Times states that "The Governor Henry Lippitt House Museum is the only intact authentic example of original 19th-century high style Victorian decoration in Providence." David Wrenn, Lippitt House Administrator, told us that the home was originally built with the intention that it would be used for quite a good deal of entertaining.  As such, it has retained that legacy in that many events continue to be held here.  It is the perfect space for coming together for special times.

lippit gridBuilt at 199 Hope Street in Providence for textile merchant Henry Lippitt, his wife, and their six children, the house was completed in 1865 and occupied by several generations of the Lippitt family for 114 years. Lavishly decorated with colorful stained glass windows, ornate carved woodwork, and marble statues, the Lippit House is widely known for its many faux finishes. The spaces include a collection of fine art and antiques, elaborate fireplaces, inlaid floors, and Victorian high-style ambiance.

The Lippitt House’s beautiful spaces create an exceptionally nice venue for a variety of social events such as bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and receptions.  They also offer their facility for retirement parties, anniversary celebrations, and other community events.

From spring through autumn, events may be held in the garden space which includes a beautiful fountain.  Tents are often erected for the comfort of guests.


As always, B&M Catering Company is ready willing and able to help you create an event that is just perfect for you and your guests.  Our friendly, helpful staff and outstanding food are always well-received.

More Lobster Romance

Last week, we posted a blog about the "romance factor" of a lobster dinner.

The article was called "Spice Up Your Valentine's Day" and it mentioned a study in which it was determined that men and women believe that a lobster dinner is the most romantic meal of all time.  

Sure enough, some of our readers took the not-too-subtle hint and ordered lobster dinners delivered to their home to play a key role in their romantic evening plans.

We just love when our customers send us feedback on the meals we provide, especially when they involve romance, so we were particularly pleased with this letter we just received:

lobster dinner


Thank you so much for sending along the fabulous lobster dinner.  We ate the whole thing up except for 2 potatoes!

What a terrific meal, it really reminded us of Boston! 

Just before we sat down to eat, my husband, George started talking all romantic...

"Come on pretty baby. It's time to eat. You look terrific and smell great"

I looked up to realize he was talking to the lobster...not me! 

A million thanks for a lovely dinner, anyway.
