Join us as for the 5th Anniversary of the day we declared to be THE RIGHT DAY to experience oysters of all kinds. We created this annual event to showcase the broadest array of oyster species and varieties at the best time of the year (in the N. Hemisphere, anyway). Anyone who knows oysters KNOWS that this is a MUCH better time of the year to introduce the bi-valve curious to oysters than Aug 5 (National Oyster Day).
