Aw, shucks. Oyster fans will be pleased to learn that next week marks the first-ever Old Town Oyster Week.
The event, which runs from October 12-17, was created by the Old Town Business Association and Guinness Beer. Participating restaurants will offer two Guinness products and an assortment of oyster dishes.
The restaurants include:
- Daniel O’Connell’s Irish Pub
- The Fish Market
- Landini Brothers Restaurant
- Mia’s Italian Kitchen
- Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub
- The Wharf
- Theismann’s Restaurant
- Union Street Public House
- Virtue Feed & Grain
- Vola’s Dockside Grill
- Whiskey & Oyster
The event has not gone unnoticed by Del Ray business owner Bill Blackburn, of Pork Barrel BBQ in Del Ray. Blackburn challenged Chadwicks owner Trae Lamond to an oyster eating contest.
“It’s always fun beating Trae, especially when also helping to promote some great Alexandria restaurants and raising money for Alexandria causes,” Blackburn said.
Lamond accepted the challenge.
“I’m gonna shuck him up,” Lamond told ALXnow.
It’s oyster week! In celebration of this I am challenging local punk and Chadwicks owner Trae Lamond to an oyster eating contest to benefit a local charity of his choice. Details and location to be determined.
