For the 6th consecutive year, The Deck on Laguna Beach and Driftwood Kitchen, together with The Bungalows at Pacific Edge Hotel, will host “Sip & Shuck” on Sunday, November 4 from 2-6 p.m. to benefit CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Orange County. The event will give guests the unique opportunity to experience a variety of hand-shucked oysters, champagne, sparkling wines, spirits and more from around the world, all while enjoying panoramic ocean views from the oceanfront restaurants. Executive Chef Rainer Schwarz and his team will also prepare delicious tastes from The Deck, Driftwood Kitchen, and Hendrix. The event will include beverages from Veuve Clicquot, Laguna Beach Beer Company, Piper Sonoma, Nicholas Freuillate, Nolet’s Gin, Bianchi Winery, Kendall Jackson, Tito’s Vodka, Reyka Vodka, Cote de Roses, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Ketel One, Sailor Jerry, Bloom Gin, Casamigo Tequila, Lavazza Coffee, Chambers and Chambers wines, and Sysco Foods, among others.
“In the past five years, Sip & Shuck has become one of the most popular events in Laguna Beach, and beyond! This year, we will once again benefit a local Orange County group, CASA, which is dedicated to helping children in need,” commented Director of Operations John Nye. “With expectations set even higher for this year’s event, we are going to focus on sourcing an incredible array of fresh oysters, pouring terrific champagnes, wines and spirits, and presenting lively entertainers. As always, guests can look forward to a few surprises along the way.” In the last two years our partnership with CASA helped us to raise 45,000 dollars.
General admission tickets for the 21-and-over event are available for purchase for $125 pre-sale or $150 for VIP early entry at 1 p.m. Admission includes oysters and other small bites, as well as access to champagne, wine, cocktail and beer sampling. Event attendees looking to enjoy the evening’s celebrations may take advantage of the Pacific Edge Hotel’s Sip, Shuck & Stay packages.
