The Goods from Fanny Bay Oyster Bar & Shellfish Market
Vancouver, BC | Fanny Bay Oyster Bar & Shellfish Market is taking its seafood show on the road and teaming up with Copperpenny Distilling Co. for four exclusive oysters-and-cocktail pop-ups at the North Vancouver distillery (103-288 Esplanade East) on select Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.
Oyster aficionados and cocktail acolytes can come together and pair some of Fanny Bay’s best bivalves with handcrafted drinks from the Copperpenny stills during each of the events, which take place in the distillery’s lounge in the Lower Lonsdale Shipyards District from 2 to 7 p.m. (or until sold out) on July 10, Aug. 14 and Sept. 11.
Fanny Bay shuckers will be on hand to serve up premium oyster varieties — PEI Sweet Selects, BC Sunseekers and Washington State Kumamotos on June 12 and seasonally inspired ‘Shuckers’ Choice’ selections at the following events — for $24 a half dozen or $42 a dozen per person while the Copperpenny crew will offer a curated menu of gin-based libations created especially for each occasion for an additional $17 per person.
Oysters and cocktails will also be available to order on an à-la-carte basis at each event, as well as unique Oyster Shooter creations that include Shooter No. 001 (a Sunseeker oyster atop Copperpenny Caesar shot) and Shooter No. 002 (a Sunseeker oyster atop Copperpenny Social Project Gin No. 005 shot) for $8 each.
