Oysters, Brews, and Blues

Oysters, Brews, and Blues


Please join Foodways Texas for a night of Texas appellation oysters, craft brew, and Houston Blues. Goode Company Restaurants, in collaboration with Texas Eats author Robb Walsh, has announced Oysters, Brews, and Blues, a celebration of oyster reef  communities along the Texas coast. Goode Company will put together an oyster appellation tasting bar reminiscent of what Foodways Texas did at our first symposium in Galveston, February 2011. You can read about our Gulf Coast Gathering here.

The evening will include discussion from Robb Walsh about Texas appellation oysters. Following the discussion, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy appellation oysters from Goode Company Seafood. Sonny Boy Terry, Houston bluesman recognized as one of Texas' top harmonica players, will be performing throughout the evening. No Label Brewing Company, Southern Star Brewing Company, and Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company will be on hand as well to discuss pairing their beers with Texas appellation oysters.

What: Oysters, Brews, and Blues, a benefit for Foodways Texas. Admission: $50

When: Tuesday, March 27th from 6-9 p.m.

Where: Goode Company's Armadillo Palace, 5015 Kirby Drive, Houston, TX 77098. Directions available here.
