    We haven’t ever seen these dandies in action, but we’re guessing they’re a big fat waste of money. Hi-Ya! The $140.99 Oyster Chucker opens clams and oysters in one stroke. But it looks like you have to insert the chucker between the top and bottom shells, and if you go through all that trouble, why […]

    Last week was busy so we didn’t have time to post. This week is slow and rainy so we’re posting about last week. On Monday the 22nd we headed into Seattle to give out samples of smoked and pickled oysters to foodie folks at a networking event called Foodportunity. We brought along lots of wood […]

    it would not be a twitter. It’d be more like the sound a hungry hereford makes when you want to sleep in and she wants her breakfast. But we promise to be sweet. Follow us on Twitter: @hamahamaoysters.

    Foodportunity Awaits

    March 22, 2010

    We’re heading into Seattle in just a wee little bit to serve smoked and pickled oysters at the third-ever Foodportunity. The event, located in Tom Douglas’ Palace Ballroom, is a gathering of people who love to prepare, write about, and eat food. The only hitch is that we’ll miss the low tide this evening. But […]

    Tomorrow it’s supposed to be mostly sunny with a high of 67 degrees… perfect for a day on the tideflats. You might even want to add sunscreen to the list of things to bring.

    Tool-Using Monkeys

    March 16, 2010

    We sell two styles of oyster knife in the store: a Dexter Russel with a long blade and a generic short handled knife with a short blade. The size of the blade you need depends on the size of the oyster you’re attacking: bigger oysters need a bigger blade. Our shucking crew uses Dexter Russel […]

    Holy Crab!

    March 10, 2010

    (unholy reflection). Notice the pink stars on the crab tank? Annie turned us on to chalk paint, so we turned our crab tank into a chalk board. Of course, it’s not the best place for a chalk masterpiece because when the crab fling water around they ruin the artwork.

    Sea Star Cruise

    March 9, 2010

    Tube feet in action! Today the sea star was doing laps around the aquarium. Maybe he ate too much over the weekend? We sped it up to double time, and it’s still pretty slow. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuXGOxBTLT0

    A couple of months ago Adam pulled some seed out of a grow-bag and brought it into the store to shuck. The oysters had led sheltered lives… they hadn’t yet been tumbled or tossed around on the beach, and so they had soft, brittle shells that broke into pieces when we shucked them. You might […]
