The title accurately describes an evening of oysters and some more oysters among friends and family. For the love of food in general and spending time with friends and family Dr. Ray Arensdorf and his wife Courtney created this fun event as a fundraiser for local charities in the Santa Maria Valley. And I, being a foodie myself, was invited to attend.
Our evening was spent around the island in an outdoor patio bbq room surrounded by coolers of raw oysters and many friends. Ray and Courtney created oyster masterpieces for the guests to sip, savor and indulge their senses. We ate them as fast as they were prepared and anxiously awaited more. The evening was unique and felt like it flew by, although we had been there for multiple hours. Little did we know the planning and care for the event began when they left their house in the morning to pick up supplies for the day that took them to the Morro Bay Embarcadero and a walk on the beach.
Dr. Ray Arensdorf was born in California and raised in the Santa Maria Valley. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from UC Santa Barbara and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic West. In his personal time he participates as an Oyster and Sushi Chef for family gatherings as well as fundraising charity events.
