I was recently reminded that Shuck Portland is almost upon us! It starts Saturday, February 1 and continues for a week beyond that, from Sunday, February 2 to Saturday, February 8—classes, dinners and more. Here are some of the things you can look forward to.

Kickoff Party and a Dinner

Portland in a Half-Shell. Saturday, February 1, 6-10pm.
This festival kickoff event is an oyster party featuring  thousands of the best oysters sourced from over a dozen oyster farms. You’ll eat—oysters and a non-oyster food buffet, courtesy of The Nightwood—and drink—scotch, cocktails, and local beer—to the sounds of DJ Maxx Bass. There will be oysters for sale, too. Tickets are $25 and include six oysters of your choice, one welcome drink, and light food buffet. Buy tickets here (first clickable event module). Redd On Salmon, 831 SE Salmon Street, Portland Continue reading “Oysters Galore at the Third Annual Shuck Portland”
