Right Here, Right Now
- Celebrate National Oyster Day with The Oyster Century Club and Maré Oyster Bar! Rachel will be joining us. Rachel has been interning with me and recently went back to school at Rhode Island School of Design. I asked her to take a crack at designing a logo for us and am thrilled with the results! Come meet Rachel and enjoy half price oysters and clams during our Tweetup Monday, hashtag #oyster100

- It seems there's been a rash of oyster thefts on the Cape. This is not only just plain wrong, it hurts tourism built around our burgeoning oyster industry. Hope the next news on this is better.
- One of my favorite local writers is Tamar Haspel, publisher of Starving off the Land. You've read her in the Huffington Post, Washington Post and more. She and her husband are now farming oysters. Barnstable Oysters "Practice Shellfishness" is underway and we hope one day soon we can host an Oyster Century Club event featuring these babies. Read Time, tide, and temperature — Starving off the Land to learn more about what Tamar & Kevin are up to.
First Light Oysters - Mashpee Wampanoag - I recently learned about these oysters being raised by the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. We're hoping to plan a tasting in the near future.
Shellshocked: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves - I'm working on a screening of this oyster documentary coupled with a tasting. Stay tuned for more info.
About the Oyster Century Club
We're a merry band of oyster lovers working our way to tasting 100 varieties. By joining the club (see sidebar) you are entitled to prizes, giveaways and special deals at Oyster Century Club sponsors. When you log 100 varieties you'll get a certificate marking the accomplishment. So far at least one of us, Larry Yu, passed the quarter century mark, tasting 25 varieties.
I'm up to 50 - how about you?
