Oyster Riot

Sam | Nov 22, 2004 11:05 AM

Did anyone attend the Oyster Riot this past weekend?
This was my first time. I'm glad I did it but I'm not sure I'd make it an annual event. The atrium is very crowded and noisy but a pretty fun atmosphere.
We ate more oysters than I care to think about it retrospect. You can't do harm to yourself w/ too many oysters, can you?
Regardless, the variety and flavors from different locations was very interesting. By the end of the night though, I had to vote for the VA oyster (the only local oyster). It was the perfect balance as opposed to the overly salty Maine variety.
Would love to hear others' views on the event and the oysters (and wine) themselves.
