SHUCK FOR SHELTER
A BENEFIT FOR
THE WORKERS OF DRAKES BAY OYSTER COMPANY
WITH: FINE & RARE, CARNEROS WINE ALLIANCE,
ANCHOR BREWERS AND DISTILLERS AND STAG DINING
SUNDAY, AUGUST 24TH 2PM
AT FISH IN SAUSALITO
Dear Diners and Culinary Adventurers,
As of July 31, Drakes Bay Oyster Company, the last oyster cannery in the State of California, was forced to close by order of the NPS and Department of the Interior. As the shucking and packing building was being lifted from the ground and put onto a transport trailer for removal, the oyster shuckers and packers realized that their lives were forever changed. Some have worked here on the farm for 30 years and are valued members of this rural community. Currently Drakes is only able to continue to harvest the oysters in Drakes Estero for the wholesale market, but as that comes to an end, all of the oystermen and women will lose their jobs and homes. Their families will be uprooted.
Stag Dining alongside Fine & Rare and the Carneros Wine Alliance, are hosting a benefit event for the workers of Drakes at FISH in Sausalito. This event will help raise money for the families of Drakes Bay Oyster Company. We invite you to celebrate the culinary contributions that this historic company helped weave into the fabric of the culinary landscape of the Bay Area for decades.

Fish. is proud to be completely dedicated to sustainable seafood and organic produce, bought locally from the people who work so hard to bring the season’s best to our doors. We grill our food over a wood fire, drink our wine from simple glasses, and think a day spent fishing isn’t a bad way to spend a day.
