Oyster Club #2

November 9, 2008

Last night was the second Oyster Club event of the year. It was a tour of the Charles Moore house, an amazing architectural work filled to the brim with trinkets and doodads and stuff.

It also had the scariest chair I have ever seen.

Justin really enjoyed the short discussion on Charles Moore’s architectural style and perspective. I really enjoyed the food.

There were apple pie cupcakes from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop. Holy. Cow. A delicious vanilla cupcake with spiced apples in the center and topped with cinnamon buttercream. 

The Tipsy Texans wowed us with Moore House punch, a concoction of fresh citrus juices, two kinds of rum and Pimento Liqueur that they created just for this event…

and an insanely good Tom & Jerry, an old-fashioned drink made with a batter of eggs, sugar and spices, rum, brandy and hot water; the Tipsy Texans substituted local Zhi Tea for the hot water.

There was live music, cool people, and good times all around. Seriously, the Oyster Club has been one of the best investments we’ve ever made.

Crapton of veggies.

Hot hot dog

Justin calls this a hot hot dog. That is all.

    It’s a group started up by the Rude Mechanicals (http://www.rudemechs.com/), with monthly events that feature local goodness. I’m not sure if you can still sign up for this year or not…you can probably contact Rude Mechanicals directly, though. They’ve been a lot of fun!
