Last weekend I was lucky enough to enjoy oysters, beer, and live music at San Francisco's 11th annual Oysterfest. While slurping a dozen giant raw oysters from Drakes Bay Oyster Farm, I realized I much prefer small oysters to large ones. How about you?
Over the weekend, I found myself at San Francisco's Oyster Fest an annual event that brings partygoers together with Guinness, live music from Michael Franti and Spearhead, and, of course, oysters in every shape and form. The event took place on a sunny Saturday at a park overlooking the bay, with Drakes Bay Family Farms educating festivalgoers about oyster farming, oyster-shucking demonstrations and a suck-and-shuck contest.

Last weekend I was lucky enough to spend the sunny Saturday enjoying beer and fresh shucked oysters at San Francisco's OysterFest. Hosted by O'Reilly's Productions, the event — that featured several bands like Juliette and the Licks — drew more than 15,000 people. I spent part of the afternoon at the "Oyster Information Center" where I learned how to shuck an oyster. To check out the proper technique for oyster shucking, please click the "Start" button.
