Of Chase and oysters

Quite some time ago, my nephew, Chase, ordered oysters from a restaurant here at the beach.  The restaurant's menu included fried oysters, so he ordered some raw.  They were unsure what to do with his order.  Their decision resulted in a blog entry and this photo of

the dreaded and disgusting oyster goblet.

Do not attempt this goblet anywhere.

Today at lunch, we visited a new (to us) beach restaurant, one whose menu actually listed raw oysters on the half shell.  I'm happy to report that these oysters did not come in a goblet or glass of any kind.

Chase declared their quality hit-or-miss, and many were too sandy, but I think we can all agree that they represent a big step forward for beach cuisine.

For those who track our beach movie-watching, in addition to a couple of UFC events, we've now consumed an SF film and, of course as a late offering, the newest Segal.  It was everything we expected it to be.
