Ran across this in Sonoma Bite Club’s newsletter. I personally wouldn’t call it an “outrage” - not their fault to be victims of their own success, especially with Drake’s now closed:
Hog Island Oyster Farm in Marshall quietly made two major changes to The Boat Oyster Bar picnic area recently: Seating is now reservation-only and no outside food or beverages are allowed. 90-min max; $10/pp charge for no-shows
Note the reservation-only picnic area below The Boat remains unchanged, which is $5/pp for 3 hrs, outside food/bev allowed.
