Lobster Clam Jam and Strangers in the Night are bringing Barbecue Bonanza to the Old Port today, a feast of grilled meats of all kinds (including fish and seafood), as well as cheese, veggies and lots and lots of booze — there will be a wine bar, beer bar and casear bar on site, and proceeds will be donated to the Starlight Foundation.
