Holiday Gift Guide

YES, we are finally doing this!!! Let's meet up at the famed Tomales Bay Oyster Company on Sunday 8/23 and get our shellfish on!

This is California's oldest shellfish farm (since 1909!), about an hour north of SF. Yes, that means you have to set your alarm clock on a Sunday morning, but deal with it- we'll have bloody marys awaiting your arrival.

The coolest thing about this place is that there are picnic tables out front plus bbq grills so we can buy fresh oysters on premises and grill 'em up or slurp 'em raw. Oysters rockefeller, oysters with chorizo con queso, oyster shooters... HELL YAH!

I'll get there early to save a table- but please try your best to get there on time!!! I know it's early, but I've got work that night so need to leave by 3pm.

Please bring beer or your beverage of choice, and anything else you would like to grill. Huge slabs of bacon, anyone???

I'll bring plates, utensils, cups and the bloody mary stuff. Also, I'll bring a few condiments for the oysters- you should too! Let's have a sauce competition!

Facebook message me or comment below with any questions. Hope to see you on the 23rd!
