World Oyster Invitational and Bloody Caesar Battle Recap

Bearfoot Event 1

When living in Whistler you can’t always rely on the Weather Network to get the forecast accurate and when the grey clouds coated Whistler this past Sunday, sunshine seemed doubtful. Regardless, hundreds of partygoers arrived for what the Bearfoot Bistro called the afternoon fundraiser “the garden party of the season,” and they didn’t let the crowd down.

Held on the Whistler Golf Club Practice Range, across the Bearfoot Bistro, was where the festivities were held. Attendees sported beautiful dresses, suits, hats, jackets and accessories, prepared for whatever the weather decided to do.  There were different vendors there serving wine, sangria, beer, cider and, of course, caesars. If one was hungry they had a variety of food to choose from especially a selection delicious oysters (including a very delicious sake- oyster shot).

At the stage, where the shucking competition was held, there was music, bleachers and a grassy dance floor. As the afternoon progressed so did the weather. With only a few bouts of drizzle, the sun ended it’s game of hide-and-seek and came out to play. After many rounds of shucking, Issac Martin Del Campo from Vancouver was crowned the winner (title and $5000 prize) and everyone was in good spirits. Amy Huddle, from Sushi Village, was the Bloody Caesar Battle Champion and also won $5000. Her caesars were scrumptious!

This is a must-attend event at it’s all for a good cause: to raise money for Playground Builders and The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation. Keep an eye out for this event next spring and make sure to reserve your room with us!
