Grand Central Market Hosts 2nd Annual DTLA Oyster Festival

Grand Central Market

317 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013

11:00am to 8:00pm

Following the success of last year's inaugural shuck-a-thon at Grand Central Market in Downtown Los Angeles, The Oyster Gourmet will again convene oyster farmers from around the country for the second annual DTLA Oyster Festival.

The two-day event on October 1st and 2nd  is all about the bivalve. Come meet the farmers, taste their half-shells, and learn about the distinctive "merroir," or taste of place, that distinguishes oysters grown in different waters. This year's six participating farms include: 

* Hama Hama from Washington State: the oldest oyster farm on the West Coast, active since 1922.

* Sol Azul Seafarms, based in Baja California within the El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

* Grassy Bar Oysters from Morro Bay, Central California.

* Morro Bay Oyster Company, also from Morro Bay, offering its acclaimed "Pacific Gold" oysters.

* Rock Harbor Oysters, a small family farm from Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

* Glacier Point Oysters from Alaska Shellfish Farms, at GCM for the first time.

The farmers will be shucking both days from 11:00 a.m to 8 p.m. Oyster Gourmet will offer a selection of French wines by the glass and by the bottle. 

Oyster Gourmet owner Christophe Happillon, a certified Maitre Écailler or "oyster master," will once again offer two sessions of his wildly popular Oyster Shucking 101 workshop, a sellout at last year's festival. The hands-on instruction on how to shuck and serve oysters is free but requires reservations at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/oyster-shucking-101-tickets-27758973838

New this year are two additional ticketed classes. "A Guided Oyster Tasting" Saturday at 6:00 p.m. will lead students through the flavor profiles and tasting notes of six oyster varieties. "Terroir Meets Merroir," Sunday at 6:00 p.m., will focus on wine-and-oyster pairings, as Happillon discusses how oceanic "merroir" interacts with the terroir of various wine regions. Each tasting costs $20 and space is limited. Tickets are available at http://www.eventbrite.com/o/grand-central-market-11334792000

For kids, there will also be a free "shell-art" booth from Little June Bugs, where they can make their own oyster-shell pendants or customize a favorite picture frame with jewel-like mini seashells and other decorations.

An Afternoon With Henry Selick

Downtown Independent

251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

2:00pm

GLAS is proud to feature the work of an animator and director whose films have delighted and inspired a new generation of filmmakers: Henry Selick. As director of the films Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas, Selick has made some of the most internationally recognized animated films of all time. They were not only pivotal for the current resurgence of stop-motion, but helped transform the perception of what animation could be and what it could accomplish. His work showed general audiences that animation was not a form to be confined, but rather continuously explored in both its narrative and physical forms.
Henry Selick Joins us for an intimate conversation in which he will screen his personal shorts including Slow Bob In the Lower Dimensions, Seepage, Phases, and several surprises. We’ll have a Q&A with Selick led by GLAS co-founder Einar Baldvin.

Please join us after the screening for a reception hosted by CalArts Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement.
