OUR OYSTER SERVICE STYLE

As we have done from the start with ALL of our NYOW events, OystoberFest incorporates a FORAGING service & presentation style. Guests roam from STATION TO STATION, each of which has a different oyster variety on offer which may change from one to another during the course of the event. Oysters are shucked live at each station. Guests enjoy a few at each station and then move on to the next one. I this way they can try many varieties of oysters and move around a room filled with other interesting and interested people who also love to explore various oyster varieties, toppings, dressings and a GOOD TIME!

NOT SO FINE PRINT

AHOYsters - Sold Out!

¡SOLD OUT!

As expected this event has sold out. Unexpectedly, it was scooped up by a single group before we were able to get individual tickets on sale. These 45 folks well be enjoying a great time and an extraordinary oyster experience. And if the weather keeps doing what it has been doing we are in for an otherworldly evening.

The good news is, this experience can be duplicated nearly any day of the year. If you have a group, occassion or desire, we can create a bespoke AHOYsters experience for you on this vessel or several others. We’ve done A LOT of these and they are always wonderful.

AHOYSTERS

A most extraordinary oyster experience has returned to the NYOW rotation. We’ve done a few of these over the years, but never on Mariner III. This is a one of a kind vessel which will afford only 45 guests the ability cruise around NY Harbor and enjoy an elite oyster service paired with fine beer, wine and cocktails. This 11th Hour addition to the roster will be fully articulated very soon. For now, consider this. Mariner III was launched in 1926. New Yorkers were still harvesting and eating oysters out of NY Harbor then. So, time spent enjoying oysters on this vessel as she cruises NY Harbor is going to be like a time machine.

Elite Oyster Service provided by Empire Oyster.

INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP TICKETS ON SALE ASAP.

THE OYSTERS*

We always aim to feature “THE FIVE” at SHUCKeasy. That is, ALL FIVE SPECIES of oysters commmonly consumed in North America. (Note: SPECIES is quite different from VARIETIES). Those 5 speice are Edulis, Lurida, Sikamea, Gigas & Virginica. See, you already learned something GREAT about oysters. There are really only one or two varieties of the first 3 species mentioned so the other 9 varieties on offer will be different Gigas (Pacific) and Virginica (Atlantic & Gulf) oysters. An even dozen on the ice is a helluva curation and sure to delight even the most discriminating Oyster Aficionado for a few reasons.

  1. Oympias are AWESOME and SUPER RARE!

  2. Very few oyster bars EVER offer The 5.

  3. The 5 are only all available at the same time from, roughly Sept - Jan (Prime Oyster Season.

THE COCKTAILS

Creative Cocktails by Master Mixologists & Brand Ambassadors expertly crafted to PAIR PERFECTLY with the oysters on hand.

THE DRESSINGS, TOPPINGS & ACCOUTREMENT

We go to great lengths to offer the finest oyster dressings and toppings.

3 Mignionettes, Spirits + Spirited Pearls™, Fresh Grated Horseradish, Gresh Ground Wasabi, Sea Foam, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit and absolutely ZERO cocktail sauce.

OTHER DRINKS
