Seafood, Science, & Celebrity: Gala
November 1, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $75
Join us this fall in celebrating the fourth annual Seafood, Science & Celebrity 2014 as the Gulf Coast tradition returns to Dauphin Island, Alabama, for a weekend’s worth of culinary heritage.
Presented by South Mobile County Tourism Authority, the weekend will kick off Friday, Oct. 31, with the invitation-only sustainability symposium for chefs, researchers, and food industry and government managers co-hosted by NOAA’s Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, Dauphin Island Sea Lab Estuarium & VisitSOMO. Saturday morning will offer a variety of activities to choose from, including private tours of the Bayou la Batre fishing village and boat building sites, and a trip to sea on the 65-foot Sea Lab research boat.
The celebration of Gulf Coast heritage continues through Saturday evening with the traditionally sold-out annual V.I.P. Gala at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Estuarium, and on Sunday with the Sustaining Heritage Event and the inaugural Sunday Supper Gulf Coast, a Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner featuring a collection of the South’s most interesting culinary icons.

Listen to live music from the decks overlooking Mobile Bay, and embark on an exploration through Dauphin Island Sea Lab’s Estuarium. Gala guests can make a stop in each region to sample a variety of Gulf Coast seafood dishes and Southern drinks from creative guest chefs and local specialty vendors. From local breweries to Mobile Bay oysters shucked on-site, the Gala sets the tone for a laid back Southern weekend.
