Local sisters making oysters a family — and feminine — business

The Oyster Girls, a Sonoma County traveling oyster bar, is aiming to put a touch of feminine class back into the North Bay oyster business, dishing out the popular mollusks with a dose of glamour.

Everything from the company's logo — an innocent-looking '40s-style pinup girl sitting on an oyster shell — to its charming owners, sisters Aluxa and Jazmine Lalicker, has a measure of modesty the duo say is an antidote to the oft-macho culture that has come to characterize the oyster.

At least that's how the Oyster Girls see it.

"We do try to bring femininity to the oyster, but we've worked really hard to keep it classy sexy," said Aluxa Lalicker, 33, who started the business about seven years ago.

"It always has a touch of class. I think of my grandmother and how they were sexy back in that era," she said.
