BLUSH WINS

On Sunday, July 28th, Finch & Fork restaurant inside Canary Hotel, 31 W. Carrillo Street, hosted its first annual “Shuck ‘n Swallow” competition, sponsored by Santa Monica Seafood Company. Participants included Finch & Fork, Arlington Tavern, Blush, Brewhouse, Enterprise Fish Company and Hungry Cat. The team I was assigned to count, Brandon Worrell (head chef, “the shucker”) and Doug Fresh (line cook, “the swallower”) from Blush restaurant, 630 State Street, took top honors with 85 oysters shucked and swallowed within 10 minutes.

    The best part of the whole thing was finally getting to
    meet John Dickson! (second best, of course, were the yummy
    oysters). Thanks man, sorry you had to watch that.
