One guess what we celebrated with?
Yep, you’re right: Champagne! Not sparkling wine, not champagne method, but the real McCoy, Champagne with a capital C! (Okay, I admit, we had some sparkling wine and apple juice, red and white wine, and beer and tequila and…but all that belongs in another blog post to come!!)
Which we thoroughly enjoyed with fresh, raw and barbecued oysters as well clams we steamed up in wine and garlic in a huge pot on the campfire fire!
Next Friday, October 28, from 3-6pm, I cordially invite YOU to get your bubbles on and join us in a Champagne Day celebration at the Jolly Oyster at the Ventura State Beach from 3-6pm. Parking on this special occasion from 3-6pm will be FREE (instead of $10!)
