I made a joke on Tumblr about oysters that some of you guys didn't find too funny. It stemmed from my dinner with Young Jeezy this past Monday night. Confession: "Anonymous" is me. I was too chicken to put my name behind that quote for fear of a lawsuit. Well, now that I know that I can't be sued for posting a factual statement, I'm coming out (Diana Ross voice).
But seriously, quite a few of ya'll hit me to explain the greatness of oysters. For two days, all I heard was, "You don't know what you're missing". Well, you're right. I've never tried them and I can't say when I ever will. ESPECIALLY the RAW ones. But, this whole situation did make me realize that a lot of you really dig those nasty little things in a shell. Lol. So, this post is for YOU!!!
This Saturday AND Sunday, you need to make your way over to the Steamhouse Lounge (at the intersection of West Peachtree and 11th Street) for their 25th Annual Oysterfest. Now, this isn't like the Lobster Fest over at Red Lobster where they're just running a special. This is a 2 day block party!!! There will be music, beer, and PLENTY OF OYSTERS. You have to buy tickets to attend - $20 for a 2 day pass or $10 for just one day.
I haven't decided if I'm gonna send Mach Diesel or Sakina or someone else from the crew to check it out. I mean, based on the talent lineup on the site, I don't think the majority of this crowd really fits the Bite Life target demographic. However, good oysters are good oysters no matter what music is playing, right??
Any of you go, send us some pics!!!
