National Oyster Day

How could I have missed it? National Oyster Day was yesterday, August 5. In honor of the occasion, here's a cool dozen, from the great Acme Oyster Bar in New Orleans.

I've spent some happy times, sitting at the zinc bar just inside the front door, watching the skilled oyster shuckers do their thing, and sipping a cold Abita beer.

It's not too late to celebrate, though - we can eat oysters all week! Here are a few places to start, in Santa Monica

It's been a while since I had them. I'm busy dogsitting this week...maybe I can make up for it next.

I couldn't believe how many oysters I ate in New Orleans. Acme was PACKED when we were there so we had to make do with the lovely oyster bars at Royal House and Desire. SO good.
