Oregon Shucks: Starfish happy hour features oysters, brews from northwest U.S.

Happy hour at Starfish this week features all some things Oregon, specifically oysters and brews.

Tillamooks and Dead Guys might sound like expat dart rugby ultimate frisbee dart teams but refer respectively to oysters from the bay of the same name and to ale from a producer called Rogue, all of which come from Oregon, a place that has an official nut (the filbert), was the birthplace of Simpsons cartoonist Matt Groening, makes some pretty good Pinot Noir and also goes by the name The Beaver State.

Anyway, happy hour at Starfish is from 6 PM to 7 PM weekdays and 11:30 AM to 2 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

Pay rmb20 for select oysters — Tillamooks are up this week — and for house wine and beers, with options on the latter including bottled Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Vedett White and Vedett Blonde.

And if you are in the mood, why not sing the state song:

Oregon, My Oregon

Land of the Empire Builders, Land of the Golden West;
Conquered and held by free men, Fairest and the best.
On-ward and upward ever, Forward and on, and on;
Hail to thee, Land of the Heroes, My Oregon.

Land of the rose and sunshine, Land of the summer’s breeze;
Laden with health and vigor, Fresh from the western seas.
Blest by the blood of martyrs, Land of the setting sun;
Hail to thee, Land of Promise, My Oregon.

Okay, maybe just hum it.

Not sure what kind these were, but a) we had them on Canada Day, b) they were delicious and c) apparently they contained quite a bit of zinc.

  1. Man they need some Tillamook cheese! This stuff is like catnip for us Oregonians. Right after we eat it, we either go drunk driving for hours on end, build meth labs, or at worst go speargun fishing for bats. nothing takes a winged vampire spawn out of the sky better than a dart through the heart.

  2. Can somebody please provide a field report on these Oregon oysters? They look great and RMB 20 per oyster happy hour price is fair for Beijing…although I do miss $1 oysters on the half shell happy hours in Massachusetts.

    Anybody try these?
