    news and whatnot

    January 9, 2012

    1. Oyster Stout 2012 is brewing! 2. Adam gains a pretty impressive title. No, we did not write this ourselves. Hopefully this world is big enough for two oyster kings. 3. More about the above: Seattle’s Bastille Restaurant (in Ballard) is featuring Hama Hamas in their new Monday- Wednesday oyster happy hour. The newly-crowned Oyster […]

    So our “master” oyster griller gave the  demonstration at the University District farmers market last weekend (see previous post)… and in the process burned the heck out of her hand. Moral of the story: wear heavy duty waterproof gloves when grilling oysters so that boiling oyster liquor doesn’t soak your glove and scald your knuckles. […]

    Rama Wrap Up

    May 25, 2011

    The first ever Hama Hama Oyster Rama was fun, exhausting, at various times either hilarious or mellow, well-attended, delicious, and productive. We raised nearly $5,000 for the Hood Canal Education Foundation and had a great time doing it. [UPDATE: This was a guess, because we were waiting for the final number to come in… and […]
