Ivar's Makes Plans For the Future: Free Chowder and Seagulls Beware

In 2038, the clams will be our masters
Okay, so I might not have loved the food at Ivar's when I reviewed the place shortly after landing in Seattle. Actually, I pretty much detested it, wondering, "Why in all those 70 years [of Ivar's history] couldn't someone figure out how to make a decent fish fry? One that didn't just lie there on the plate, blanding itself to death?"

But one thing that neither I nor anyone else can ever accuse Ivar's of is a dearth of creativity when it comes to advertising. As a matter of fact, I'd put them pretty high up there on the list of most creative--maybe right behind PETA, and whoever makes the psychopathic panda ads for Panda Cheese.

This time around, the marketing geniuses (and I mean that in the most sincere way possible) at Ivar's have decided to start celebrating the restaurant's 2038 Centennial celebration 28 years early with a whole host of deals, contests, bargains and weirdness. They began with...

...this.

Followed by this.

And then a whole bunch of other stuff. Like a giant clam-shaped time capsule. A "predict the future" contest that could win you a $1000 gift certificate (which will cover you for a whole lot of fish and chips, for better or worse). And a whole bunch of "Centennial Meal Deals" running now through October 31, including three-course dinners for just $20.38, free chowder (with the purchase of an entree) and 100-cent shots of clam nectar (for the ladies you love).
