A Night to Celebrate Lillian

 

For nearly 25 years Lillian Mangos was there to take your order at Bob’s Clam Hut. Now the Clam Hut will honor its legendary employee with a special night on Tuesday, July 23rd, from 5 until closing.

 

The special night will be Lillian themed with limited edition Lil’s night t-shirts for sale and worn by Bob’s staff. Collages and posters that chronicle Lil’s time at Bob’s will decorate the Clam Hut. Other acts of homage include a special dinner with clams- cooked Lil’s way of course, and country music, another favorite of Lil’s, under a tent in its back yard area.

 

Bob’s owner Michael Landgarten hired a then 60 year old Lillian Mangos in 1986 where Lil quickly rose to a renowned status as Kittery’s most famous cashier, and a crowd favorite at the Clam Hut. For Bob’s customers, ordering at “Lillian’s Window” was a special, unique experience. Landgarten remembers, “While Bob's has four cash registers to receive orders often ‘Lillian's Window’ had 10 or more deep on line while the other windows had no one.”

 

Lillian’s influence did not just end with the order window. She left her mark on the menu as well with her own recipe for frying clams as an option for Bob’s customers.

 

Perhaps even more than Bob’s customers, the staff at will miss Lillian at the Clam Hut. After 25 years of working 6 days a week and taking hundreds of orders per day, Lillian had a lasting impact on the people around her. “It was an amazing and unpredictable thrill to have lucked into having Lillian Mangos work at our clam hut. We were blessed to have her and have her for so long.”

 

So for one night this summer, we can come together, enjoy our Lil style clams, raise our glasses of ginger ale (yes another Lillian favorite) and count ourselves lucky to have known such a star.
