Unlimited seafood is something worth clearing an afternoon for. Unlimited mussels — well, that's something worth a road trip as well. On Sunday, July 29, prepare to head on down to the Miami Marketta on the Gold Coast, because that's where you'll find as many molluscs as you can devour over the course of four hours.
A Festival of Mussels will unleash a horde of new season blue-lipped mussels from 1-5pm, with everything included in the $30 online / $35 on-the-day ticket price. There'll also be an oyster bar, although you'll have to pay extra if you're keen on slurping down some shucked seafood. And, if you don't want anything from the ocean for some reason, woodfired pizza and a selection of desserts will also be on offer.
Because it is a festival, there'll also be live music to get everyone in the mussel-eating mood. But, let's face it: if you're heading to an event serving up all-you-can mussels, you're all ready primed. And hungry, of course.
