A True Story of Gettin' Fancy With a Chalkboard
We had some oysters at Snackbar last night and I noticed the old chalkboard over the oyster bar was offering a selection from "Isle Dauphine, AL." And I asked my server if that wasn't just plain old regular Dauphin Island, right next door to where I grew up. And yes was the answer. Don't get fancy with me, chalkboard! So we got some Dauphin Island oysters and they actually tasted familiar to me - I was like, "I know you, oysters!" - unless I was fooling myself, as I usually am.
