Oyster House this Saturday afternoon. Professional shuckers from across the city will go knife-to-knife in a shucking contest, and the assembled guests will get to slurp up the resulting mollusk bounty.If you like oysters, make plans to stop by
A panel of judges consisting of yours truly, Philebrity’s Joey Sweeney and Preston & Steve’s Marisa Magnatta will rate the contestants according to speed and also accuracy - they'll get points off for every broken shell or ripped muscle, which means you can expect carefully opened oysters to eat.
Admission to the 2 PM contest is $5 per person, which includes all the oysters you can get your hands on. The bar will also tap a special firkin of craft beer, available on a pay-as-you-go basis. There’s also an amateur contest after the pros, so expect plenty of oysters to go around. See you there?
