~WATERBAR~ invites you to come unhinged at their third annual OysterFest on Saturday August 27th from noon-3pm. Party on the patio with celebrity guest Brian Boitano, and enjoy unlimited oysters from Waterbar’s large and eclectic selection of oysters (sustainable ones, mind you), plus local wine and craft beer, live music, and fun contests. Added bonus: your ticket will benefit the Surfrider Foundation.
Olympic gold medalist and Food Network host Brian Boitano will be joining local celebrity judges, including Eye On The Bay host Liam Mayclem (aka Foodie Chap) and Renee Richardson of KFOG’s “Morning Show,” to preside over the oyster shucking, oyster eating, and hot sauce competitions. Meanwhile, have fun slurping down as many oysters as you like while drinking up with Napa Valley wines and local craft beers. And to entertain your other senses, you’ll be listening to live music by local jazz band The Golden Gate Hot Club while taking in the awesome bayside views.
Tickets are all-inclusive at $40 per person for unlimited food and drink—buy in advance online. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the San Mateo chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, which is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches. The 6,000 oysters served at last year’s OysterFest raised $11,000—not a bad catch at all.
