Before giving us a sample of his spicy, delicious recipe, Salome Ponce asked, " Are you ready to taste the best clam chowder?" (Pictured below).

Among all the vendors, our favorite clam chowder came from Patrick Molloys. Bold flavors made us come back for seconds and as a result, we felt they proudly earned our yellow ticket stub.

We had to go back for more!

The fun-filled event lasted from 1pm - 4pm where festival goers tasted various types of Clam Chowder at a super affordable price. Throughout the event, vendors cheered when they received a yellow ticket, which meant they were voted for best chowder of the day. The event is annual and we recommend checking out the next one. You won't be disappointed!

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content.
