This Weekend, an Orgy of Oysters on Long Island

by

Jimmy’s No. 43 is doing a nice job of showcasing Long Island oysters every Thursday night, but the faithful can get even closer to the source this weekend at the 26th annual Oyster Festival in the aptly named town of Oyster Bay. The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, and will feature a lot of bivalve-based festivities, such as oyster eating and shucking contests. Among other things, there’ll also be a 50-inch chocolate fountain, which has nothing to do with oysters (one hopes) but still sounds fairly inviting.
