If you want to skip all the blah blah, the RSVP form is just below.
You have been invited to an oyster feast on Sunday, January 25th from 3-5PM, for which an RSVP using the form below is essential. But first, some context:
Some time ago, two Okanagan-based pals with a shared interest in the Okanagan's food and wine culture--Jordan Marr, a Peachland veggie grower, and Tyler Harlton, a winemaker from Summerland--discovered their mutual desire to find more time to eat and drink and cavort with their friends and colleagues. Their motivations were different but complementary. Jordan was feeling too dependent on one of his other friends, and saw the idea as a chance to branch out; Tyler wanted to give people more face-time with his moustache.
Those motivations no longer exist. Tyler shaved, and Jordan was asked to bring slaw to a potluck. But the desire to get some food and wine-loving people together persisted. And then some other details fell into place. So now we want to invite you to our first gathering. We're co-hosting it with friend John Crofts of Codfathers Seafood Market in Kelowna, because the man dispenses more shellfish than the famed oyster piñatas of Colville Bay. And he's a generous guy.
So: want to come and enjoy some oysters and libations with us? And maybe a bit of indoor basketball? Great! Please bring a $5 donation for the gathering that will follow this one, and, if you're planning on enjoying a glass, please bring something. Or, don't bring any this time, but plan to bring something the time after that. Get it?
Space is limited, so that we can properly plan this. We've invited more people than we expect will be able to come. If you don't see an RSVP form below, it means that we can't wait to see you at the NEXT gathering we host.
So where's the party? You'll see the address after you submit the form. And we'll email you with a reminder on Saturday.
