If You Want to be Happy as a Clam, Eat Some Clams! -- coming soon
WeLoveClams.com is a labor of love, provided by Michael N.
Marcus. This site has a simple purpose: to spread the word about clams, good places to eat them and good ways to cook them.
We welcome recommendations and contributions, especially with digital photos. We're particularly interested in hearing about great clam joints outside the northeast US where we are.

United Clam Lovers of America
There are five classes of membership:
- People who love clams.
- People who like clams a whole lot.
- People who like clams very much.
- People who don't hate clams.
- None of the above
To maintain our high standards, no waivers of membership qualification will be granted. You must qualify for one of the five classes listed above. Lifetime membership fee is five clams.
You eat them; don't send them to us.
A clam is like sex.
Even when it isn't very good, it's still pretty good. When it's terrible, it's REALLY terrible.
Clams are good for your health. A recent study showed that 99.76% of people who ate clams were still alive 24 hours later.
"Where's my weenie?" Hard-shell clams (cherrystone, littleneck, etc.) are born as males and many become females later.
