About Those Oysters

Just a quick note for those of you who read my column this morning (Feb. 22, 2006) in the Oakland Tribune or the other ANG newspapers. I’m working on the Rogue cheese and beer tasting article at the moment an hope to post it in about two hours: 11 p.m. PST.

Meanwhile, here’s some news about Hog Island Oyster Bar in the Ferry building in San Francisco: They have a special each Monday and Thursday from 5-7 p.m. One variety of oysters on the half shell (kind changes from day to day) for $12 a dozen. Beer (and they only carry North Coast’s excellent beers) is $3.50 a pint.

On a sunny spring day, this place on the edge of San Francisco Bay is a perfect place to visit. No doubt, you’ll see me there.

On the subject of oysters, Luka’s Taproom & Lounge, 2221 Broadway, Oakland, also has $1 oyster night each Monday. Luka’s has a first rank beer list, including many Belgians on tap.
