This delicious clam chowder is lovingly made by Lisa Giacomini of Baby Tomato using only the finest ingredients. After enjoying your dinner you will be treated to a special presentation about the Lighthouse, and then the Lighthouse Guide will lead you to the top of the Tower under the (almost) Full Buck Moon.
