04oystersingleoysterI know for some of you, this is the Schlafly Festival you’ve been most eagerly awaiting the Schlafly 2009 Stout and Oyster Festival.  Schlafly is flying in “over 25,000 fresh oysters from both coasts and offer a tantalizing array of dishes, like gumbo, Rockefeller, fried, Po-Boy, and grilled.”  They will also be offering up a raw bar as well to give you the ability to try several different vararites.

Schlafly will also be flying in some some celebrity shuckers to open up your oyster fyster than you can blink.  With names like “Bimbo, Clam, Rawle, Silky Smooth and Thurman” I think you’re in for some really colorful characters.

Oh, and then there’s the beer.  Schlafly will be offering  their Nitro Irish, Oatmeal and Kaldi’s Coffee Stout.  You’ll be able to combine some of your favorite Schlafly stouts with the briny delight of fresh Oysters.

Schlafly’s festival will be on start on Friday, March 6 from 5:00 p.m.-Midnight and continue on Saturday, March 7 when it will run from Noon-Midnight. Stay tuned tomorrow for a VIP Dinner contest!
