This month’s Color & Cocktails event showcased the vibrant nature inspired work of Ramon Matheu—an artist with a post-Pop style and proud resident of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Upon entering the Maine Cottage® Flagship Store in downtown Annapolis, guests were greeted with a raw oyster bar (donated by Boatyard Bar & Grill owner Dick Franyo), refreshing Leinenkeugel’s Summer Shandy Ale, and plenty of good company and conversations. Ramon’s colorful coastal artwork was displayed throughout the Flagship Store and paired perfectly with Maine Cottage® signature colors and coastal furniture.

The raw oyster bar donated by Boatyard Bar & Grill was a hit! Our professional shucker was manning bushel after bushel of Chesapeake Bay Oysters for guests. A Maryland tradition, oysters on the half shell are served with Tabasco sauce, cocktail sauce, and lemon.
