Thank you all for ROCKING Oyster Week so f*&%ing hard!!! Paige (aka me…I guess I don’t need to talk in the 3rd person…weirdo) thanks you from the bottom of my heart! I couldn’t have gotten through the week without any of you, so THANK YOU!

All the food specials for the week were dope AF, and we only had a few minor injuries considering that 2,328 raw oysters were shucked!

The Oyster & Beer Fest was a success overall, with some minor tweaks we’ll remember for next year. A special thanks to the staff that worked it, especially the shuckers who shucked for 6 hours straight (and a shout out to Lindsey, who worked on her birthday and hopefully had a shucking good time!).

Now onto the next fest (TBD, but get excited)!

CORVALLIS HALF MARATHON

We’ll be pouring beer this weekend at the Corvallis Half Marathon (both on Saturday for the kids run and the 5K and then on Sunday for the actual half marathon). Come on down and support the runners at the finish line…you may even see a few employees run on through!

TUESDAY RETAIL FIRE SALES

Starting next week (Tuesday, April 16th), Beth will be out at the Tap Room every Tuesday from 3pm-4pm to sell old apparel at a discounted price. Please shoot her a text (541.730.9000) or an email (beth@block15.com) so she knows how many people to expect and when. This will run until interest fades/apparel runs out Newer employees, you’ll want to take advantage of this!

TAP ROOM PEDESTRIAN CROSSING SIGN

There is a new(ish) pedestrian crossing sign at the Tap Room to help raise awareness for drivers pulling into the Tap Room that there are people (and kids) walking around. This is how the sign is supposed to be oriented, so if you see it in a different/wonky spot, please either move it back or let a Tap Room staffer know.
