Oysterfest 2010

Jule, Katy, Kat, and Alex pose as geoduck harvesters
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Oysterfest* in Shelton, WA. What is Oysterfest? In short, it's a county fair-like atmosphere where everything is focused on oysters (and other food from the sea). In addition to the amazing food booths, there was live music, cooking demonstrations, requisite jugglers*, and the west coast oyster shucking championship.

The list of food we consumed is pretty epic, and I just have to share.
  • Grilled oysters (with garlic butter)
  • Bacon-wrapped oysters
  • Oyster curry on rice
  • Clam linguini
  • Clam steamers
  • Shrimp/crab cocktail
  • Oysters shooters (free, as they were the results of the oyster shucking contest)
  • Tempura fried coconut shrimp
  • Clam chowder
  • Five-alarm chili
  • Rootbeer float
  • Elephant ear
  • Raspberry pie ala mode
  • Some other dessert that is just escaping me

Yes we really ate all that. Yum! There was much more that we didn't get around to trying. There's always next year, though. If any (or all) of this sounds appetizing, you might want to make your way to Oysterfest next year.

@Steve: While I attended with a great bunch of people, I, alas, was dateless. Oooohhhh...you mean the calendar date. This year was Oct 2 and I'm sure it will be a similar date next year. You seem like a guy who could definitely appreciate Oysterfest!

How did I get a plaque at storvik? I now live in infamy ( sp?). Also wren schooled some oysterfest jugglers and he hit a pen out of my mouth with a club.
