Oyster Happy Hour and Milestones to Remember

So we're having our first Oyster Century Club© happy hour at Les Zygomates this Friday August 24 from 4-6 PM. This is a milestone to note! Come join the fun and spread the word. No fee to join the tweetup, members buy their own sips and slurps. If you are not yet a member of the OCC you may join by clicking this link to Paypal.

Please let me know via Eventbrite page that you're joining us, so we can give the bar a heads up on numbers.

We have a couple fun surprises in store...


Welcome to the Club

We are delighted to announce Les Zygomates as a sponsor of the Oyster Century Club©. Another milestone...

And, as some of you know, the Mister and I had our first date at Les Zygomates. 'Twas a four-hour blind date (longer than that tour to Gilligan's Island!) - never looked at my watch. Some things were meant to be.

Each year we return to "our" table to mark the date. These are truly milestones to remember - (remember Doc, the warranty's expired, you are stuck with me now!)

Back in the early days, there was no "Jazz side" - imagine?  I'm still regularly delighted to realize anew our local favorite offers free live jazz, in addition to a highly decorated wine bar, raw bar and always fine menu. Easy to see why it's often our go-to spot for dinner or drink, it's one of those spots that makes us grateful to live here in the Leather District.


Photos, Facts, Fun

"les Zygomates" is French, and refers to the zygomatic muscles that makes us smile. The sister restaurant is Sorriso, Italian for smile.

True to its name Les Zygomates leaves us all smiling.


Join the OCC, come meet us at Zygomates, and members who bring their sheet will be entered in a raffle.
