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.

Alexis hosts a magical experience in one of the prettiest locations in boston. Overlooking the skyline from the pier in east boston, she showed the group how to properly shuck an oyster, taught us about the oyster industry, and provided delicious accoutrements. Would definitely suggest this to anyone that enjoys the food

We did not know what to expect when we got there. Not only is she knowledgeable but she is so down to earth my son and I had one of our best posting experiences. We drove here from New York for the Red Sox game and we honestly think this is the best time we’ve had. The oysters were outstanding to take home knife will be a great memory and she is absolutely outstanding individual fun, witty and so personable

Amazing experience! Alexis is a fabulous host. She made shucking oyster doable and fun with many tips. I am comfortable to shuck my oysters at home now. The location is beautiful by the water with great view. The bonus, She’s very generous and brought plenty oysters. We had lots of opportunities to practice shucking oyster and enjoy the treat. Highly recommend this experience!

Alexis knows how to create an enjoyable, low-key atmosphere. I don't even eat oysters (I booked the experience for my girlfriend who loves oysters) and I still had an amazing time. The weather was in our favor and the vibes were great. I recommend this to visitors and locals, alike!

This was super fun and laid back! Everyone was with their partner and it was a hilarious experience for us to “compete” and see who the true Oyster Master was. The educational portion was quick and fun and enough to handle the mystical shucking knife.
