a clambake is smoking a joint with the windows rolled up or similarly confined space

In application, "clambake" seems to be in the family of, though not wholly synonymous with, another term starting with "cl.."

Brian, ff you make the full compound term with that as the front end, you may enjoy a more peaceful and transcendent...union of elements, with the daughters sublime and the mother superior.
  Wed. 12/17/14 3:25pm Robert:

I gather that "clambake" in this context is related to the use of "clam" in jazz performance, which (according to what Jean Shepherd said) is an off-note on a wind instrument, as in, "He hit a clam."

Clambake rhymes internally with hambone.

Oubliettes features Matt Verta-Ray of Speedball Baby and Madder Rose. This track sounds EXACTLY like Madder Rose.

@Mike: Try either a ski shop or an outdoorsman place like REI. You might try Target, but in California they don't sell sleds. Just rollerblades.

This one's for the 9 year old. I was thinkin' about maybe a snow tube also. I remember those being pretty fun...until you go over a stick and they pop.
