Pop-Up Recaps

 

Year 3 On-Water Kickoff

LOC Event

LOC celebrated the end of summer and the start of our 3rd year with an on-water event. Thanks to all who attended!


Members enjoyed a banner day, oysters on the half-shell and fresh off the grill, a surprisingly delicious vegan version of our chorizo-butter recipe topped with fresh cilantro and lime zest.


We did Brunch!

Members enjoyed a beautiful spring day, lots of oysters, two oyster themed dishes, and a banging bloody mary bar featuring Lendy’s local and celebrated mix.

Special guest speaker, Karen Forget addressed the group with success stories and new challenges for the Lynnhaven River watershed.


Guest chef Cory Vann’s famous seafood gumbo was a smash hit. With provided to-go containers, many guests were able to take several servings home to share with their families.
