So here is what we did with our evening. Ya know, besides watch DVR and Thursday night TV…
This event was held at the Virginia Aquarium and was put on by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Isn’t it kind of cruel to eat seafood in an aquarium? Whatever, it was good.
It was a pretty cool night. It was called Sensible Seafood Fest and had an emphasis on local seafood and restaurants. They also had information on different local farms and CSA’s. We partook in a CSA this year and were really happy with the different veggies and fruits we got to try all year-long.
I think I may have partook in a liiittle too much wine, but it’s all good. ‘
Oh! Other honorable mentions are the raw oysters with lemon granita from Boot in Norfolk and the She Crab soup from the Surf Club in Virginia Beach. They also served local Albemarle wines (Red blend and Sauvignon Blanc). A great evening and a really good way to sample different food from local vendors.
