Playing with most partners, you could transfer to clubs and hear if partner liked clubs or not ... but this particular evening you have a different tool --

2 is range ask or an escape to clubs. Partner bids 2N with a weak hand or 3 with a strong hand. You don't actually have a "club invite" option. Given that, what do you do?

"By Hamman's Hammer!" -- 3N
"Use what you've got!" -- 2, go if partner is at the top, else play in 3
"It's matchpoints" -- 2, but pass 2N if partner bids it.
"Passing never gets a catchphrase!" -- Pass
Other -- I don't really think there's another option, so convince me in the comments.
