    MATTER OF TIME: It was going to happen. It was only a question of when. Since the two main activities of oyster consumption are shucking -- gotta get to the good stuff -- and sucking -- that's how the good stuff goes down -- it was only a matter of time before some festival paired those two rhyme-y words together for a full-on contest. Oh, and look at that: San Diego Oysterfest is holding a Shuck and Suck Competition. You'll want to make sure you stick to that order of course; by no means do it the other way around. And you'll want to be in San Diego on Saturday, June 18.

    OTHER MATTERS: Beer, Music, and Food are all writ large and red, so count on lots of each. There will also be at the stove, or, um, shucking bar, demos, if you'd like to be a seafood master at home. The day raises money for the Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A general admission is $25. And just remember: shuck then suck. Shuck then suck...
