The annual Morrison Oyster Festival is back for the month of August. For the duration of the month – you’d be able to grab $1 oysters during the 6-7pm happy hour and then there’s plenty of things to do here; like oyster eating comp, oyster shucking masterclasses and more. Full detail below. We attend the preview.
