Everyday should be Champagne Day, but we did not pick an every day Champagne. We decided to pair with oysters, so where better than Sea Salt in Berkeley? They have delicious, fresh, $1 oysters on their Happy Hour menu weekdays from 3-6 (and Mondays 3 - closing). The chef's commitment to sustainable sea food adds to the pleasant satisfaction of the tasty fresh oysters ---and there are yummy selections on both the menus as well.
If you don't order the lobster roll, you will miss the housemade potato chips, or maybe talk your server into an order of those (they were amazing with our champagne)
And what to pair? I looked into the wine closet and plucked out a divine wine: MV Krug Grande Cuvée Brut. Available at K and L Wine for $139. Rich and silky. Toasty aromas and flavors. A ghostly outline of fruit. Somewhat assertive acid. Fab pair with horseradish kissed oysters and a great end to a hectic week
