5th Annual Oyster Shucking Contest at Julep

June 14 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Julep is back with the 5th annual Oyster Shucking Contest! Both industry pros and guests are welcome to participate in the competition. Winners will receive prizes from Williams Sonoma and, of course, bragging rights as the 2021 Oyster Shucking Champ!
There is no cover charge for the evening’s festivities, and spectators will not only get the chance to witness the battle in person, but also to indulge on $1 oysters all night (not to worry, these are not the oysters shucked by competitors), as well as cocktail specials from the evening’s beverage partners.
The Shucking Competitors:
  • Jean-Philippe Gaston
  • Evelyn Garcia
  • Dylan McShan
  • Benjamin “The Opener” Quasius
  • Lindsey Fuquen
  • Lawrence Walker
  • Mary Bass
  • Felix Casto
  • Kate McLean
  • Alvin Schultz
5-6pm: Happy hour with drink specials from our beverage partners
6-9pm: Oyster Shucking Contest (2 rounds)
Let’s shucking go!
