A few weeks ago (I know, I know… worst blogger ever) I had the awesome opportunity to attend California Academy of Sciences’ “Sustainable Catch” Nightlife with the FishWise crew. Now, for those of us Bay Area locals, Cal Academy Nightlife┬áif a well known excuse to drink while walking through an indoor rainforest, a kick-ass aquarium, and a hall of taxidermied African animals. Needless to say, it’s at least a once a month occurrence in my humble household. Imagine my surprise and delight when FishWise invited me to come hang out at Nightlife and talk to people about sustainable seafood while hosting a Green, Yellow, Red (GYR)* FishWise themed bean bag toss game (otherwise known as “cornhole” as am told by my more midwestern compatriots). Looooove my job. Thanks FishWise and Cal Academy for the beers, food, and wicked good time.


FishWise GYR cornhole!

*Ever picked up one of those handy, oh-so-wallet-friendly Seafood Watch cards at the Monterey Bay Aquarium? Then you probably already know that the GYR label corresponds to sustainable (green), good alternative (yellow), and unsustainable (red) seafood choices. For example, while dungeness crab is a best choice “green”, bluefin tuna is a big ole’ “red.”
