Oyster BBQ on the beach 2017

 Registration is closed for this event
Oyster Fest at Drakes Beach, Point Reyes Sunday, October 8th, 12:30pm

Point Reyes has some of the most beautiful beach scenery in Northern California. The plan is to take over part of Drakes Beach in Point Reyes where our chef will be serving a selection of raw and baked BBQ oysters. We will be serving 2 types of oysters:


  • ●  Raw oysters: Tomales Bay Miyagi oysters on the half shell served with mignonette and fresh lemon, shucked on the beach by our chef.


  • ●  Grilled oysters: Tomales Bay oysters grilled on the half shell, served with a garlic herb and wasabi cocktail sauce. Absolutely delicious!


The oysters will sell for $3 apiece. You can also order to take home. Unopened oysters are good for 2 to 3 days. In that case, make sure to bring a cooler with ice.    

What to bring:

  • Layered clothing: Sunny weather could play along... or not... Could be very warm and sunny, could be windy, foggy and cold, could be both in the same day, so dress accordingly.

  • Lots of sun screen lotion.

  • Everything beach: towels, flip flops, umbrellas, folding chairs, games to play in the sand such as Frisbees, volleyball, sand castle building kits, etc...

  • Your own drinks, and if you don’t like oysters, your own picnic.

  • If you feel like it, some dessert, or salads, to share as a potluck.

  • Your own plate or bowl and cutlery if you want to be environmentally conscious.

On a more somber note, our friend and cook for this event for the past 10 years, Tyler Fitts, has been diagnosed in June 2017 with ALS, and his health has been seriously affected in the past few weeks. Both him and his wife Leilani have been intrinsic in making this event a success on our behalf for a decade, and we wish him good health in the future. For those of you that know Tyler and understand the fight for his life he is dealing with, Leilani has set up a YouCaring Campaign to accept donations to help him and his family financially. Go to: https://www.youcaring.com/tylerfitts-899909

All donations will be used for Tyler’s care.
