What you'll do

Our life philosophy is EAT ANYTHING, ANYWHERE. We like eating some of the best foods, in odd places. We will meet on the docks of East Boston where we will tear into and slurp dozens of local oysters, harvested by our oyster farmer friends, while looking over the harbor and skyline. You will learn how to properly shuck an oyster and will go home with a shucking knife of your own. The memories will be in the details. We will set up in "flash-mob" "pop-up" style along the water. Expect the unexpected.
Other things to note
This is an outdoor experience. To get to the dock, I encourage you to take a water taxi! There are several pick-up points and I am happy to help arrange this for you.

I am a native Bostonian with a passion for shucking oysters anywhere and everywhere. Here in East Boston I am the founder of a "secret supper club" where we work closely with oyster farmers and chefs. We like to throw parties and experiences in obscure places. You can call me the queen of mystery. I like making delicacies like oysters, and caviar, more approachable. It's kind of my mission! I have lived here my entire life and also used to be a hotel concierge so I am more than happy to provide you with a list of other "must-do, must-see + must eat's" here in Boston.

We've been fans of EBO for awhile, but this was our first AirBnB Experience and we are so glad we signed up. We were looking for a safe activity to celebrate a birthday, and with COVID our options were very limited. Alexis made sure we had a great time, felt properly vetted, and set us home with a little extra treat. 10/10 we will definitely book events with her again.

Amazing experience, great host, lots of fun, very tasty. When things are a bit safer for travel, I'll want to invite visiting family members to do this.

This was so great! The location was beautiful, the host was fantastic and a lot of fun, we got to eat a ton of oysters (enough that that we can’t even remember how many we ate!), and we now have two of our own shucking knives. We did the lobster roll add-on and it made for a lovely lunch and a great experience!
