Get ready to eat your body weight in the ocean's greatest gifts at this all-you-can-eat oyster affair.
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: the Oyster Frenzy.
You probably heard of the Oyster Frenzy back when it was held at the Albert Park Hotel (and, later The Prince) — it gained quite a reputation as the night where Melbourne's biggest oyster lovers could converge to eat as many of the molluscs as they could humanly handle. Well, it's back. One of the organisers of the OG Oyster Frenzy, Tom Walker, is reinstating the night of mollusc madness at the Bleakhouse Hotel on Thursday, September 12.
Here's how it will go down. Tickets are $85. As well as all-you-can-eat freshly shucked oysters — yes, all-you-can-eat — from SA, Tassie and NSW, there will also be lots of barbecued mussels, crab and other canapés. You'll also get unlimited wine and craft beer for the night, which wraps up at 9pm. It's at the same time the fanciest and the messiest buffet we can imagine.
Previous frenzies have seen over 20,000 oysters shucked and swallowed, so do what you need to prepare. And maybe try and get Friday off work.
