Congrats to Meritage on its first Oysterfest

Lovely day yesterday at Meritage's first Oysterfest. The really good: The friendly, chatty shuckers talking about their wares; the as-always great take on cocktail sauce by Meritage; oyster "school" taught by real oystermen. The good: As many oysters as a girl could eat, all beautifully laid out on ice (a feast for oyster lovers' eyes and stomach). The bad: The wooden nickel payment system (understand the need to keep money separate from servers, but this system didn't work); in particular, the fact that each "nickel" cost $2.89. The only real bad: The extremely loud PA system and the high-pitched screams of the oyster shucker judge.

But all in all, a super event. Definitely looking forward to next year!
