"Waiting in line, you can get complimentary bloody beers (beer on tap, cocktail sauce, horseradish, hot sauce, and fresh oyster liquor) to keep you standing straight. While you drink that, watch the monger make the crab cocktails and salads in the window. The clam chowder is not the most consistent one in town, but the fact that there's no recipe is what makes it best. They just keep adding half and half and fresh clam liquor to the ongoing kettle, and it gets better and better."
