    Thank you very much, J! I skipped the dinner since I enjoyed your feast soooo much and digging was not helping for my waist line. Clambake and Thai curry were fantastic!

    I had a fabulous time! J, you are an excellent cook, the salmon was soooooo good. I loved it all, especially digging for claims. It was one of the best events ever. Thank you for opening up your home J. Hugs, Rhonda

    Sadly, I have to release my spot to another lucky person. Just realized our daughters school play finale is tomorrow. What a bummer !

    I am actually going with Xiaohua, so one person can come

    This should be a great time for all. The weather says rain; so don't forget to bring your parka. Gloves that can get wet are good; especially those gripper gloves with the coated palms. Bring your boots too

  • Sara T.

    We got our fishing licences yesterday!!! We can't wait!

    April 25, 2013

  • kyoni

    Please try to arrange car pools as parking will be tight !!

      We live in Puyallup - We have room for one or two more people but I don't know if anyone else is also in this area (or will be by this area).

      April 23, 2013

  • J

    i will supply buckets and rakes.

    April 22, 2013

    • Sara T.

      Anything else you recommend bringing? We've never done anything like this before so aren't QUITE sure what to expect. :)

      April 22, 2013

  • Sara T.

    So is there anything that we need to bring with us? Other than our fishing licences and maybe some gloves? Another question - I assume this week or something we'll be sent directions or more information? We just moved here in January and I'm not very familiar with the area - I want to make sure I can find the place on Saturday. :)

    We are SOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to this!

      I am not even on the list but I will think you will need gloves (for holding the oyster) and oyster knives, garden rake (for clams), a bucket for clams and one container for oyster(one buckets/container for each person is a must). I will also bring something to sit on or knee on the beach..

      1 · April 22, 2013

    • Sara T.

      It said all bucket/rakes/tools will be provided so I'm assuming that the only thing I'll want to bring is something to sit or to kneel on while on the beach.

      I've never done anything like this so it will definitely be interesting! I will definitely make sure to pick up some gloves. :)

      THanks for the suggestions!

      April 22, 2013

  • Bubble

    how come I don't get to know this until today awwwwwww :( I sooooo want to go.. but I know some other place to dig clams so I might just do that if I don't get on the list (cross my fingers)

    Anyone have two spots open in their car? If not, I can rent a car (we can split the rent) and can take an additional 2 people in it. I live around Columbia City in Seattle.

    I checked on the oyster population today... took the above picture to get your salivary glands working on overtime. Yes! those are all oysters.... please be sure to get your shellfish license before the weekend (sooner the better) most FRED MEYER and BIG 5 stores will sell them.

    April 14, 2013

    • Sara T.

      Thanks for the reminder! It has completely slipped our minds to go to get it.

      April 15, 2013

  • Tina!!!

    Meaning.. I'm hoping to catch a ride with someone..(my previous message was confusing)... It must be Friday!

    March 15, 2013

  • Tina!!!

    I'm with Rhonda... I'd love to hop into a carpool with someone... I'm in West Seattle a stones throw from Lincoln Park and the Ferry Terminal (Fauntelroy)..

    March 15, 2013

  • Rhonda

    I need to carpool with someone with a car.....pleasssssee.

    March 15, 2013

    • Mike

      too bad you didn't add me as your +1 (looks like everyone else who signed up did!) I would have given you a ride :)

      March 15, 2013

    • Rhonda

      Oh, so that is how it is.......I have been waiting around for you to sweep me off my feet! I had not idea that you wanted me to sweep you off YOUR feet........ahahaha. Mike, my darling, will you be my +1 from this day forward........

      March 15, 2013

  • Sara T.

    We're driving from Puyallup if anyone needs a ride from this area.

    We have a Cobalt so it's not huge but it's not as small as an Aveo or anything like that. :)

    March 15, 2013

  • J

    Please try to arrange car pools as parking will be tight. I will have gates open early so don't worry too much about start time. Plan on taking 30 minutes from the time you cross the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. I will plan on Crabfest in July. stay tuned....

    March 15, 2013

  • Tina!!!

    Wow! It's 8pm on the nose and already there's 9 of us in there! Heck yeah foodies!!! Awesome

    • Sara T.

      I saw that! People were showing up on the wait list within about 45 seconds! :)

      1 · March 13, 2013

    • Tina!!!

      Yeah, I think everyone set their alarms! I know I did! I was literally sitting here with my laptop on my lap hitting the F5 key (refresh)... I knew this was going to fill fast.. but 45 seconds! That's awesome. I'm so excited!

      March 14, 2013

  • Rhonda

    J, what is your secret.........ahahah.

    March 14, 2013

      Attend one of my events and see. :-)

  • Tina!!!

    8:02... and it's full! Wow! That was amazing!

    March 13, 2013

    • Sara T.

      I was hoping to be able to go to one of the other meetups before this one, but it looks like ALL the events for this group fill up pretty quick. Maybe just because's there's so many people?

      March 14, 2013

    • Rhonda

      Sara, welcome to the group. I would suggest that you get on a waitlist if the RSVP is full. Most times, members tend to change their RSVP due to conflict in schedules. At least 50% of the time, waitlist folks move up. Good luck and if there is an event you really want to attend, let me know and I will ensure that our newbies receive an opportunity to attend the event if possible.

    March 13, 2013

  • Sara T.

    I'm going to try my hardest to come out to this!!! THIS is the type of thing that we want to do! Silly question - We just moved from Michigan - How do we get a fishing license? Are we able to bring anything found home or does Jay use it all in dishes?

    March 12, 2013

    • Sara T.

      J - OMG. WAY more than we need but the boyfriend will definitely be happy about it. :) He's an aspiring chef and I know would LOVE to cook some fresh seafood. Thanks for the suggestion for the licence!

      Carolyn - Thank you! I think we're going to run to Fred Meyer but it does look like you can buy it online as well.

      March 13, 2013

    • Sara T.

      We are DEFINITELY going - Provided I am able to RSVP for it. :)
