Our Signature Annual Events

Walrus & Carpenter

Hosted by Taylor Shellfish Farms as a benefit for the Puget Sound Restoration Fund, the Walrus & Carpenter picnics provide the ultimate oyster-eating experience.

The nighttime, low tide picnic takes place by lantern and moonlight in Taylor’s Totten Inlet oyster bed. Icy gusts of wind off the bay will invigorate your experience. Take a shucking lesson before dining on these plump, sweet oysters just rousted from their beds. Devour the freshly opened delicacies paired with award-wining “oyster wines” by Browne Family Vineyards and Gruet NV Sauvage served in sparkling Reidel stemware. The perfect blend of magic and madness. As the tide rises, revel in a blazing bonfire awaiting you on the beach and savor a steaming cup of chowder. This is an experience not to be missed.  All proceeds for these unique events benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

Tickets will go on sale November 1, 2019 for the January 9 and February 6 2020 Walrus & Carpenter Picnics

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery

Look for the Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery event in 2020, hosted by Bainbridge Organic Distillers.  It will be a wonderful afternoon sampling local oysters and craft vodka cocktails. In addition to raw oyster service, we serve oysters off the grill with lemon, garlic and a touch of red pepper flake and deep fried oysters are the starring ingredient in a hearty chowder.

Puget Sound Restoration Fund will once again provide oysters for the event, including our native Port Madison Petites, raised right on the shores of Bainbridge Island.

All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.  Check back here or at Bainbridge Organic Distillers events page for this great event in 2020!

Whiskies for Wildlife

Another exquisite Whiskies for Wildlife is in the books!

The sold-out event featured more than 225 Scottish single malt whiskies and world-class single malt, grain, blended and antique whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Taiwan, the United States of America and more.

Sumptuous small plates were devised for this event by the Manor House’s Executive Chef to complement the whiskey offerings and served at several stations throughout the hall and patio overlooking beautiful Rich Passage.
