Beach Party Tonight

I’ve spent the last few days in Manzanita, on the Oregon coast, engaging in behavior that would probably be labeled as both gluttony and alcoholism were I to reveal the full extent of it. Nine guys, close to a hundred wines. I’m not entirely sure that the human body is intended to consume alcohol for 16 or 17 hours straight on multiple consecutive days.

I took plenty of photos this weekend, but these are two of my favorites—a post-prandial bottle of Huet Le Haut Lieu and a few of the wines from an evening’s dinner.



Perhaps my favorite photo—my friend Eric braving the elements at 2am to shuck more oysters for us. That’s devotion to gastronomy.

Am I reading that correctly? A case per person over several days?

After all that you remain uncertain about the body's ability to consume at that level?

I guess you're going to have to re-run the experiment. ;)

Mmm, old Rinaldi.

Oysters in the wee small hours are a sign that you ARE doing something right....
