Billed as a kickoff to San Francisco's Indian summer (which, well, we might not feel this year of if the glacial summer weather is any indication), Waterbar hosts the second annual OysterFest on Saturday, August 28th.
The outdoor festival (pray for sun) will feature grub from oyster Waterbar (Oysters with House-made Sauerkraut), Farallon, Nick’s Cove (Oyster Gazpacho), EPIC Roasthouse, Nettie’s Crab Shack (Oyster Po-Boys), Drakes Bay Oyster Company and Beausoleil Oyster. The oyster festival will also feature live music by surf band Drifting Sand, as well as "local celebrity" emcees/judges including. Also, there will be wine. Lots of it.
All proceeds will go to benefit the Surfrider Foundation, a bitchin', surfer-founded agency dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. If you have a drop of California blood running through your veins, you probably heard of Surfrider. (If you can't make it to the OysterFest, feel free to donate something, anything here.)
