Hank’s Oyster Bar Hosts The Fourth Annual Hank’s Oyster Fest | Events
From Heather Freeman:
On Saturday, April 16th, Hank’s Oyster Bar is offering the perfect way to usher in spring with its forth annual Hank’s Oyster Fest. Offered at both Hank’s Oyster Bar locations, 1624 Q Street NW in Washington, DC and 1026 King Street in Alexandria, VA, this all day event celebrates the bounty of tantalizing oysters offered at Chef Jamie Leeds’ neighborhood seafood hot spots. From 11 AM to 3 PM, guests will spend a Saturday feasting on a variety of featured oysters (all they can eat!), washing them down with a selection of premiere beers, including Troegs, Allagash, and Brooklyn Brewery. Freshly shucked oysters, showcased on this special day, include local East Coasters such as Dragon Creek, Rappahannock and Samuels & Sons Seafood Co., and West Coasters such as the delicious Taylor Shellfish and Hama Hama from Ron Forino of United Export Service. Hank’s will donate 5% of the total sales to Women Chefs and Restaurateurs (WCR), which Chef Leeds serves as president.
During the Hank’s Oyster Fest, guests can sample the all-you-can-eat fare including other signature items such as fried oysters, BBQ’D oysters and the tasty onion rings and French fries. This stand-up event is perfect for socializing as Hank’s Oyster Bars offers a warm and casual environment. And for those who are tempted to stay for dinner, service will begin at 5:30 PM. Special guests from the local oyster farms and beverage brands will also be present to educate guests about the oysters and tasty beer pairings.
Tickets for the event are priced at $75 per person and will be available for presale beginning March 1st at both Hank’s Oyster Bar locations, and are required to secure a place at the Oyster Fest.
