Hama Hama Oyster Rama May 7

May 1st, 2016

One of the most madcap events of the oyster year goes down on May 7 when the Hama Hama Oyster Rama takes place on the beautiful banks of Hood Canal in Washington State. The Rama involves lots of food and music; U-pick clams and oysters; something called the Shuckathlon that involves sprinting, clam digging, shucking, and who knows what else; an insanely luxurious oyster & wine tasting with celebrity chef Renee Erickson and me, tours of the tide flats with local ecologists, and a few surprises. Plus the weather on the Olympic Peninsula is looking spectacular for the weekend. Not to be missed.
