Which Champagne will be the best with which type of oyster? Find out tomorrow at International Champagne Day!
The Jolly Oyster and I invite you to celebrate with us at Ventura State Beach where we will be toasting our local parks and beaches–as well as the fabulous foamy drink we call Champagne and the delicate briny succulent delicacy we call oysters. The event and parking during the event from 3-6pm is FREE. (Champagne and oyster photo from The Jolly Oyster facebook page).
Learn from experts about Champagne, oysters, clams, our local marine ecosystems and more! Proceeds from sales of oysters and clams will go to Save McGrath State Beach: http://www.vcstar.com/news/2011/oct/26/fundraiser-will-toast-mcgrath-state-beach-with/
While sparkling wine is fine (and thanks to Barefoot Bubbly we will have samples of five bubbling varietals of that beach ready, beach saving California wine!), you can find real Champagne at the locally owned Wine Rack, Ventura Wine Co, and Paradise Pantry. Also, all wines are 30% off right now at Vons; Vons on Harbor and Seaward will chill Champagne for you to pick up: call manager April at 805/223-3616.
