Ok. I know what all of you want. You can't wait for Wintzell's. You are jonesing for some food porn to hold you til we get there. I know----and this will get those juices flowing.
This afternoon in San Francisco, at the Hog Island Oyster Company.
 

Shucking the oysters.
 

The sampler platter---4 each of 6 different types of oysters, approximately 1/2  of the types were from their own oyster beds.
 

 
Hog Island Sweetwaters, Tomales Bay, CA.
 

 
Mignonette sauce, with a little bit of cilantro and fresh jalapeƱo.
 
OK, I hope this will hold everyone until Wintzells. I know it satisfied me!

I received a nice note of greetings from our friend,  Seafarer John. As was posted earlier  John has undergone some severe medical setbacks over the past year or so. We wish him comfort and support thru this difficult time.
He did ask that we all enjoy as much of the Gulf Seafood as possible to bring back his memories of the previous Glee Club gathering in Mobile.
  God Bless and keep you and Gail and we will dedicate the meeting to honor your companionship for these many years.
Always Smiling, John will be with us in Spirit this year.



 
I am so sorry to hear that Seafarer John is having some medical issues.  During our previous Glee Club dinner at Brick Pit, I had the pleasure of sitting next to him and he is indeed a good man and good company.  We are all hoping for a speedy recovery so he and Gail can join us next year.

I would love to be able to make this year's event, however I will be headed to Nashville this weekend for an extended stay.  My father is going in to have Carotid Artery Replacement Surgery on the 5th.  So i will be in and around Nashville from Feb 3 to ????.
 
This year's gathering seems to be HUGE!  I hate that I will miss seeing old friends and old friends/new faces during this weekend in the lovely Gulf Coast.
 
If you make Pensacola Mexico beach is only another 2 hours and Killer Seafood.  :-)  Dad sold his house there so no more Killer Seafood for me for a while.  It is also the Gumbo Contest on the Beach, Gumbo starts at 11am (Central Time) and goes until the Gumbo runs out about 1:30 to 2:00.
 
Just a reminder for all the east coasters headed that way Mobile is Central Time so adjust accordingly.... Hell Mobile and the Gulf Coast is own their own time zone where it is usually always Beer Thirty or Quarter past the Oyster.

Yes since the fiasco with BP they have been advertising the heck out of the Gulf Coast trying to get the people back.  However even before that the "Forgotten Coast" always heavily advertised along the I-65 and I-10 Corridor.  It is a straight shot from Chi Town To Mobile on 65.
 
I always thought it was funny driving around in Indianapolis and see a billboard for The El Gov. Hotel in Mexico Beach.  It looked out of place in INDY, but then after driving I-65 all those years I realized why they spent their $$$$ along the corridor.

 I was kidding about the Ohio River Oysters....but currently the KY and Indiana Game Wardens are working overtime  trying to stop the poaching of some of the sturgeon-like cousins of the Cavier producing fish...the Paddlefish and Gar being the most common in the Ohio River. Poachers are netting the fish..or catching them somehow and selling the Roe as Caviar at a very high price. Lots of coverage in the media about the poachers being caught.
 
    I never knew we had our own American 'black-market' Roe industry.
I am really getting shellfish hungry ! two weeks to go.

Depending on when you arrive in town... A bunch of meal get-togethers... some visits to 'points of interest' and time to chat in a Hotel lounge for a late nite 'night-cap and social hour(S)
Some folks do a bunch of food stops...as I know you have in other places.  Some break those up with a walk on the White-sandy beaches, or do some golf...or visit the Battleship Alabama museum in the harbor.
 
We are considering a Saturday morning drive along the Gulf to Pensacola Beach for some seafood lunch... then back to Mobile for a session Saturday night (5 PM) at the Brick Pit BBQ.
The two evening meals are sort of the focus-meetings of the group... Friday at Wintzells Oyster House- Downtown Mobile... Sort of a 'kick-off meeting' renewing old friendships and meeting new folks......then the main session Saturday night at Brick Pit. Sunday morning is wide open. I think the group will set a location and time for a breakfast/brunch during the other meets.
We- Janet, Annie, and I will arrive early Friday afternoon in Mobile after driving down I-65. We'll check into the Hotel and probably need some time to get "it" together to get to Wintzells before 5PM.
  Same going home on Sunday. We'll be headed north before noon Sunday. Many others are coming in earlier Wed. or Thursday and leaving later Sunday.
So set your clock for Chicago time (CST) and be ready to dig in as much as you care too. This is a VERY informal agenda.
Other Members, Feel free to add suggestions for ChiTwnDnr.

  The news story I saw didn't show the technique, but it did show the results... The guys simply cut out the Roe Sacks and threw away the rest of the fish.  These people were not paying any attention to the legal seasons or sizes or limits. We do have legal fishing for these fish in the Ohio River and tributaries , but it is quite regulated.
Sure wish you could join us in Mobile, you will be missed.

For anyone who is getting in early, I'll be there from Wednesday on, so we can always do a meal or two early or any other exciting things going on in the area. Options might include a trip to Billy's Seafood Market (stuff right off the boat-----the place in ON the dock), Big Daddy's Grill in Fairhope, Lulu's (as in Lulu Buffet, Jimmy's sister), Down South Barbecue (they have a great smoker you can look at) or several other choices. Shoot me a message if any one is coming in early and wants to try some neat places.

After dad was into surgery I headed out to find Breakfast, and nothing sounded good until I saw the yellow and black and my car guided itself right into the parking lot.
All American over easy with sausage, cheese grits, large hashbrown, smothered, covered, chunked,pepered, capped and I should have gotten them country, but I forgot I was so excited about them having chocolate chip waffles.
