OYSTERS: Lots and lots of glisteny bivalve action'll be on the shucking tables at the Canary Hotel come Sunday, July 28. That's the date for the Shuck 'N Swallow (catchy), the hotel's first oyster-eating competition. Those don't roll around enough for masterful shuckers or those foodies who can't get enough of the briny bites. A DJ, local wines and beers, and a taco station -- yay, taco station! -- round out the summery Sunday.
IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT... or aren't an oyster aficionado, keep an eye on the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. They're involved in many of the ocean-nice to-dos around the town, so bet you'll find your perfect H20 experience.
