Screwtop Wine Bar & Red Hook Lobster truck

Last Saturday, Clarendon's Screwtop Wine Bar hosted a special dinner menu in association with Red Hook lobster truck. From about 4:30 to 6:30pm that day, the Red Hook truck was parked directly across from the restaurant. Patrons were encouraged to walk over to the truck and purchase a lobster or shrimp roll seperately, then to buy a beverage to accompany it from Screwtop. The restaurant offered suggestions of which wine and beers to go with which style Red Hook rolls.

The combination was fun, but I ended up still being hungry and needed to snack on Screwtop's light and delicious grilled cheese sliders. They menioned this is planned to be a recurring theme, and I highly recommend it next time they come around!
