Georgia Oyster Roast: a fundraiser and feast
Sunday, November 16
at 510 Pulaski Street
$50 per guest
includes oysters, beer, wine, and food
Enjoy a fall evening filled with fresh Georgia oysters roasted and raw, delicious offerings from Peter Dale of the National, guest schucker Patrick Stubbers of Seabear Oyster Bar, pints of Terrapin Beer, chilled oyster-paired white wines from Savannah Distributing, and 1000 Faces Coffee all in the idyllic garden of one of Athens’ brightest creative talents, Rinne Allen.
The event is a fundraiser to support Athens journalist André Gallant’s research and writing about the life, death and rebirth of the Georgia oyster industry. He is producing a book destined for publication in fall 2016, and needs financial help now to conduct months of first-person reporting on the Georgia coast. He’ll be hunting down the history of the industry by interviewing long-since-retired oystermen and digging through historical archives, and he’ll be charting its future by getting muddy with the men and women harvesting bivalves from the marsh today.
