THE PEARL—Get a taste of what life on earth will probably be like in 3016, by learning how to use cricket flour and sampling brownies made with it. Tomorrow, February 10, from noon to 1 p.m., ZOOM+ is giving a free lunchtime talk about the wonders of cricket flour—e.g. compared with cattle, crickets release way fewer greenhouse gases and drink less water, and they're high in vitamins—at 945 NW Lovejoy St. [EaterWire]

THE PEARL—Hamlet, the restaurant and bar by Nostrana's Cathy Whims and -bartending-vet Ryan Magarian, will offer oysters alongside its usually selections of fine cured hams and sherry cocktails at tomorrow's Hamlet Oyster Social. Fosters Craft Cooking will shuck Northwest oysters at Hamlet from 4 to 8 p.m., February 10. [EaterWire]

PORTLAND—Olympia Provisions knows that, just like with chocolate, you can add meat to anything, and it makes it better. Obviously, this includes Valentine's Day. Olympia Provisions' new line of Valentine's Day products comes with the traditional red-satin hearth-shaped Valentine's Day box, but instead of chocolate inside, you'll find an assortment of Olympia Provisions cured meats. Want it all? You can bundle it with chocolates and bouquets of roses. [EaterWire]
