Temptation abounds with oysters, chocolate, wine, and more
It’s only a few weeks away! With decadent delights such as oysters, chocolate, and wine as its centerpiece, the Central Coast Oyster Festival’s “Aphrodisiac Bar” is the ideal spot for a brush with romance this June 16 at the Morro Bay Golf Course from 12 P.M. to 8 P.M.
From the beginning of recorded time, certain foods have been touted as capable of putting those who consume them “in the mood,” among these are almonds, asparagus, figs, and avocados. Oysters are perhaps the most famous of aphrodisiacs. In Greek mythology, the goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born from the depths of the sea in a giant oyster shell, and Casanova reportedly started his days eating 50 raw oysters for breakfast.
This first annual Central Coast Oyster Festival will show off this theme with its Aphrodisiac Bar, where world-renowned Morro Bay Oyster Company will prepare these succulent gifts from the sea in a variety of ways to enhance passion, and desire.
To complement these tempting delicacies, the Aphrodisiac Bar will offer a host of locally-produced sparkling wines (a classic oyster pairing) and Tap It Brewery will provide a special “oyster brew” concocted just for the Festival. Other beverage sponsors include Fever Tree all natural premium cocktail mixers; Manguin No 1 Absinthe; and EVO Revitalizing Sparkling Water.
Of course, no event like this would be complete without a selection of fine chocolates. The festivals Aphrodisiac Bar will feature decadent chocolates and paired with lovely local wines.
The Aphrodisiac Bar is a modern-chic pagoda by famously whimsical The Do LaB out of Los Angeles and furnished by Beach Butlerz will promote a sensory experience unlike any other on the Central Coast.
There will be NO OTHER place to be than in Morro Bay at this very delightful, decadent festival that is sure to inspire all that attend.
