Oyster Lovers Rejoice
In the South Carolina Lowcountry where I lived most of my adult years, an Oyster Roast is simply a way of life. Indeed, of the thousands of meals I have eaten over many decades, no meals have been as pleasurable or memorable or left me as happily contented as those that occurred in the outdoors, shucking and slurping briny mollusks from their shells.
That’s why I have such a love for Old Edwards Hospitality’s Oyster Fest & Dinner, which will be staged (somewhere) on Sunday, September 13. I can’t tell you where it’ll happen, because plans were still being formulated as we went to press.
But let me have Old Edwards Hospitality Group’s Amy Passauer explain it to you:
”Join us as our team of chefs welcomes back a show-stopping list of master écailler including Kimball House and Watchman’s, and The Darling Oyster Bar — providing guests a chance to sample a variety of the freshest oysters.
Lawn games and live music will add to the festive feel as Francis Ford Coppola Wines and Wicked Weed Brewing set the stage for the deliciousness of an oyster roast, passed hors d’oeuvres, steamed and grilled oysters as well as a raw bar, Creative cocktails from Kimball House and Watchman’s will put the bow on the package.
Cost is $160 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and seating is limited. Call (828) 787-2635 or (828) 787-2916 to reserve your seats.
So Oyster Lovers, give yourself the gift of tickets to this annual flavor-filled event!”
