For the third year in a row, B&G Oysters kicks off its patio season with an all day oyster fete in honor of the restaurant’s favorite eponymous bivalve. On Sunday, May 1st from 12:00 to 6:00pm, gather with some shellfish-loving industry folk from the likes of The Butcher Shop, Summer Shack, Oleana and Garden at the Cellar as they compete in a series of challenges while you sample small plates, sip on wine and beer, and, of course, enjoy the honored ingredient. The $70 ticket includes admission, oysters, three drink tickets and the aforementioned passed small plates. But, if you’re hoping to jam even more shucking fun into your day, opt for the $100 price tag which guarantees you entry into one of two Champagne and oyster tutorials across the street at Stir at either 2:30 or 4:00pm. Call B&G at 617.423.0550 to snag a ticket before they’re all gone.
