I believe I've mentioned my love for oysters. I particularly enjoy them raw. My dear friend, K., met me uptown at Casamento's this week, and we just gabbed away over a couple dozen and crabclaws. An added treat was seeing Michael, a five time shucking champ, who was once the beloved oyster shucker at the now defunct Uglesich's. We found him right inside the front door with his oyster knife in hand. Michael has also shucked for what Davis Rogan once coined in a song that he sang to our answering machine titled, "The Greatest Party in the World". (thanks Davis)
The first big party we threw at the Truckfarm was great and Michael was one of the reasons why.
