From the Proprietor

We hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!  New years is coming up and we are taking pre orders for New Years Eve!  Call our Retail Market to reserve your shrimp trays, oysters, lobsters etc.  512-454-5827!

We were invited last week to a great event put together by Austin Lifestyle Magazine hosted at Contigo, to create "a holiday feast unique to Austin" by Austin's hottest chefs!  Check out the article in the Austin Foodstyle section. 

We still have 6 spots available for our January 16th Paella Cooking Class!   If you can't make the January class there are other classes available!  Our Oyster Pairing class is gearing up to be very fun.  We have put together some great wine pairings with some delicious oysters.  This class is a must hosted by our Chef Scot Loranc.  Contact or 512-452-3820, or you can purchase tickets online through our website.

New Years comes with many superstitions, and upon researching, I found this to be particularly interesting...

*Some people believe that we should not eat anything white, because white represents death. However, many cultures swear that eating rice creates good luck in the new year. 

*Do not to eat chicken or anything with wings as this might make our good luck fly away.  We SHOULD eat fish for good luck before midnight, but not on New Year's day which might make our good luck SWIM away!

*We are advised NOT to clean our plates. Leaving that last bite is believed to assure that you will have food on your plate for the rest of the year.

New Years Superstition!
I love this...
"Superstition states that the first person who enters your home on New Years Day should be a man and you should invite him in, he should not have a key and let himself in. This is supposed to bring you and your home good luck in the New Year. They say your luck will be even better if he is tall and good looking"
