Since oysters are a topic of discussion this morning, we did a little digging to see when you and your family could attend the next oyster roast or festival around town.

December Oyster Roast | Thurs., Dec. 15 | 6-9 p.m. | $75+ | Attend this all-you-can-eat oyster roast to celebrate oyster season and pair your oysters with house-made microbrews from Peak Drift Brewing.
