Along with oysters on the half-shell, provided and shucked by Alice's Fish Market of Greenport, guests can nosh on Oysters Rockefeller that will be cooked on-the-spot, and when you need a break from oysters, head to the plentiful vegetable platter that was grown locally at the gardens of Sylvester Manor
Educational Farm or try one of the other delightful hors d'oeuvres options. Local wine and beer will also be available.
"We expect 200 + people to the 3rd annual Oyster event and RSVP's are strongly encouraged," shared Nanette Breiner Lawrenson, Executive Director of the Shelter Island Historical Society. "Last year we served 1,400 oysters."
Island Musicians, including Fast Frets and Slow Food (Tom Hashagen and Lisa Shaw), will provide the evening's entertainment. Additionally, those who are looking to learn a little bit more about the oyster's East End history, a Shelter Island Oyster Company memorabilia exhibit from the collections of the Historical Society and local resident, Robert E. Walden III, will be on display.
The Nature Conservancy
and Mashomack Preserve will be on-site to teach attendees about oyster biology/ecology, while representatives from Cornell's S.P.A.T. Program speak with guests about how to grow their own oysters.
And don't forget to document the night with a silly shot in the photo-booth provided by Shelter Island Party Rental.
