We’re big fans of the awesome Gastown pop-up shop, The Found & The Freed (207 Abbott), so it’s hard for us to imagine it being better, but then our fun-loving friends at Curious Oyster told us about this event going down there this Friday night (April 26th at 7pm).
Branded as “A Most Curious Event”, it’s a combination antique auction (with a pro auctioneer, paddles and everything) and freshly-shucked oyster bar complete with 4 different types of Outlandish Shellfish oysters plucked fresh from the pristine waters of Desolation Sound and 2 types of granite made by Genevieve Mateyko of Sunday Morning Ice Cream. Organisers have also selected two cocktails, wines and a single malt scotch to pair with the oysters. Tickets are $45. Tickets grant access, 1 drink ticket for the cash bar, granites, canapes, and a customized auction paddle. The ladies of The Found & the Freed will be auctioning off 10 of their unique finds during the course of the evening, and Megan from Olla The Urban Flower Project will be adding some green inspiration. So a fine and tasty way to spend a Friday night!
