Night of the Oyster at the Explorer’s Club, Oct 16
Sep 19, 2013
Okay, folks, this one is going to be special. The Island Creek Foundation is putting on one whopper of a fundraiser at the Explorer’s Club, that legendary temple of scientific exploration and adventure at 46 70th Street in New York. In addition to one of the finest curated selections of oysters you’re ever likely to see (we’re talking all five species, and the top representatives of each), paired with wines of equal caliber, there will be lots of other goodies. I’ll be hosting a VIP Reception that includes my favorite oysters, a special gift bag, and a private tour of the Club’s storied headquarters. It’s not a cheap ticket, by any means, but it all goes to one of my favorite causes: The Island Creek Foundation’s efforts to bring the joy of sustainable aquaculture to the third world. They’ve already started a shellfish hatchery in Zanzibar and a sustainable tilapia operation in Haiti, with more to come. You can learn all about it at the Club on October 16, 6-9 p.m. It’ll be a select group of fascinating, dynamic, and generous souls; hope to see you there.
