San Francisco Oyster Festival - View Website
Being a Southlander I’m filled with great pride to be from the home of the Bluff Oyster surely the world’s finest and most succulent example of a marine creation ever to be liberated from Neptune’s larder. So given the opportunity whist in San Francisco I stoically took up the challenge laid down by the locals to give the 11th annual San Francisco Oyster Festival a nudge and sample the accompanying locally sourced Drake Bay Oysters.
EACH and every year a pilgrimage of sorts occurs in the deep south and from many areas of the country. Parents pack off their children to go and become adults, while they’re at it grabbing a degree or two from the long established home of the Scarfie and great southern proving ground Otago University (not to forget Polytech and T-Col). Times have changed and no-one would deny some change has been required, while other changes have in my mind been for the worse within this great institution.
