The Restaurant Guy will be one of eight judges at Finch & Fork’s 2nd annual Shuck ‘n Swallow contest at the Canary Hotel rooftop on Sunday, June 29th. Eight local restaurants will have 2 contestants participate (one shucker, and one “swallower”). The team that shucks and eats the most oysters in a pre-set amount of time will win. The $30 price of a ticket includes appetizers from Chef James Siao and Finch & Fork restaurant, beer from Brewhouse, wine from Riverbench and of course oysters. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Environmental Defense Center. A cash bar will also be available. Tickets can be purchased online.
