“If you don't love life you can't enjoy an oyster; there is a shock of freshness to it and intimations of the ages of man, some piercing intuition of the sea and all its weeds and breezes. They shiver you for a split second.”
Eleanor Clark. The Oysters of Locmariaquer, ch.1.
TIME: 2:59 PM
PLACE: Schlafly Tap Room, St. Louis, MO
HandsomeHusband and I headed over to St. Louis to eat some oysters and drink a pale ale at the Schlafly Stout & Oyster Festival. Mmmm, those were some tasty oysters. I think the ones pictured above are the Penn Cove Select variety. We stayed for a dozen and a beer then we walked back to the car, taking pictures of the architecture along the way. We then moseyed down to the Broadway Oyster bar for another dozen, along with a bucket of crawfish, a cup of gumbo and some shrimp. It was a perfect afternoon in my opinion.
