Oyster Block Party Returns to Jack London Square
Local food-and-drink vendors will offer oyster-y treats.
Celebrating a very versatile shellfish -- eat it cooked! eat it raw! extract pearls from it! -- the second annual Oyster Oyster Block Party is set for Saturday, Sept. 16 in Jack London Square.
Running from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Water Street in front of the 55 Market St. building, this latest kid- and dog-friendly, free-to-the-public culmination of the Jack London Square Block Party Series will feature many local food-and-drink vendors selling their wares -- some of which will be oyster-flavored, oyster-themed, and/or will include oysters.
Food vendors participating in the Oyster Oyster Block Party include Lungomare (offering a raw oyster-bar and grilled oysters), The Cook and her Farmer (offering a raw-oyster bar and other oyster-y specials), Canasta Kitchen (offering oyster shooters and oysters Rockefeller), Tacos Oaxaca (offering oyster ceviche, oysters on the half-shell, and more), the Lumpia Company (offering fried oyster plates with various toppings), the Golden Shrimp (offering three types of tacos, all fried and all including oysters, fish, or shrimp), Bliss Pops, Gotta Love Kettle Corn, Nieves La Unica, and more.
Local brewers will also be on hand, selling suds.
This party is brought to you by panoramic Jack London Square.
