Oyster farms? Spot on the water?

MichaelJJackson Sep 20, 2012 01:53 PM

I'm trying to get a bachelor party together - we ideally want to find a place on the water where we can eat oysters, play poker and have drinks - anyone know of something like that?

Or maybe a spot with grills where we can bring oysters and drinks?

    Hog Island Oyster Co., north of Point Reyes, has picnic tables and grills. And great oysters.

      Hog Island Oyster Co. or Tomales Bay Oyster Co., but it can be cold, windy, and overcast or foggy out there.

        Heart's Desire Beach in Inverness may fit your bill. Grills, tables, and access to (family oriented) beach. Bring your oysters from a nearby farm and enjoy (that is, when the temp ban is lifted). HI is great too.

          The Marin Independent Journal reported earlier this week that Drakes Bay Oyster Co. reopened last Friday.

          Hog Island and Tomales Bay Oyster Co. have remained open selling oysters from local beds that were not closed and elsewhere.

              Hog Island is great, but be sure to book in advance as the shuck-it-yourself tables get filled up quickly, even on weekdays.
