One of my favorite things about having more than one best friend is having different things in common with each of them. With Eva, we share a foodie soul, a neverending love for trying new foods and dining experiences. For her 26th birthday, she reserved a table at the Tomales Bay Oyster Company where we ate our weight in oysters, cheese and charcuterie. Talk about a good day.
So much good food and laughs shared amongst friends. Oh and the oysters... the oysters... I still dream of them. I love mine raw, with a good hearty squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of Tapatio. Shucking oysters is hard work, but well worth it. We were even able to bring our pups, who were a handful but a big hit with the kids.
If you plan on hitting up Tomales Bay Oyster Company (which is about an hour and a half north of San Francisco), make sure you've reserved a table in advance, pack an ice chest to keep your oysters cool and bring good food, friends and appetites. Also, don't bother dressing up too much if you plan on shucking oysters (which you should, it's fun!). It's a messy worthwhile activity.
Do you like oysters? Have you ever shucked an oyster? Better yet, where you live, is there an oyster destination I have to visit??
