Oyster Century Club© Kicking the Week into High Gear

Oyster Century Club  

Monday -  November 5th 

Island Creek Oysters and the Grey Lady "Fall Kickoff" at Rialto.

That's a new Cisco Brew, that grey reference there....in case you were wondering.

Starting at 5:30pm, the boys from Island Creek will be shucking over 1,000 oysters. ($1 oysters until they run out!)

Who's the Grey Lady, then? That's Cisco Brewery's new release. Earthy, malty, spicy. Hm...could be a match made in heaven.

Meet me in Rialto's lounge!

And speaking of cooked oysters...

Sriracha Lime Garlic broiled

That's oysters with lime, garlic, and Sriracha. Under the broiler, just until edges begin to curl.

Other ideas:

Barton Seaver in For Cod & Country has a recipe (p. 61) for Peach and Paprika broiled oysters.

Becky Selengut offers Jet's Oyster Succotash as well as Oyster, Chorizo & Apple stuffing. Mmm.


What's your favorite grilled, broiled, baked or otherwise cooked oyster?
