Sorry - thought you were one of those typical 1-time posters. Seems you are real.
I'd suggest giving Alleycats a call to ask if they still serve. If so, they can provide you the address of their source.
Tried Jason's in 101 lately? Or Breeze? Aside city super , they might be the only remaining sourcing grounds

Pls update here if you find it. Haven't seen the stuff myself since Costco stopped carrying it a couple years ago.

You are welcome on that one - as on Forumosa. Apologies for thinking too much

If you fail in your search, why not just make it?

So buy some tomato juice (local supers have Kagome brand, while Costco carries another), and add some spices and clam broth.

No, I mean that if you can't find Clamato, you can easily make it, and if for that you can't find clam broth aka clam juice, you can very easily make that, too. Just boil some clams in water. Eat the clams. Save (and strain, and chill) the water, which is "clam broth".

If you can boil water, you can make clam broth.
