Anytime's a good time for oysters, but there's only one occasion where it's perfectly acceptable to gorge on them to the point of no return — and that is the Oyster Frenzy.
You must have heard of the Oyster Frenzy by now: a night where abandon is left at the door, and Melbourne's biggest oyster lovers converge to eat as many of the molluscs as they can humanly handle. It's at the same time the fanciest and the messiest buffet we can imagine.
Oyster Frenzy #11 will go down at The Deck at The Prince on Thursday 23 July. As well as all-you-can-eat freshly shucked oysters — yes, all-you-can-eat — there will also be other fancy seafood canapes such as hot oysters, clams, mussels, prawn rolls and barramundi hot dogs. Plus, all the required beer, wine and cider to wash it down.
April's Frenzy saw 22,032 oysters shucked and swallowed, so do what you need to prepare. And maybe try and get Friday off work.
