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 waterfront in Greenpoint, where we will tear into and slurp dozens of oysters, harvested by our oyster farmer friends, while looking over the East River and City 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.

What's included

  • Food
    Oysters, all accoutrements and surprise snacks

I am a native New Englander with a passion for shucking oysters anywhere and everywhere. I am the owner of a "secret supper club" where we work closely with oyster farmers, chefs, artists, hospitality unicorns + performers. We like to throw parties in obscure places while making delicacies like oysters and caviar more approachable.

Alexis' oyster experience was amazing! She is warm, welcoming, and super knowledgeable about the oysters she provides, gives great guidance on learning how to shuck, and does it all in a great and easily accessible Brooklyn location. The shucking knife to take home was an added bonus. If you're a fan of oysters, being outside, and dope people - this is worth the experience!

This is such a fun, special experience! Alexis is the best and goes out of her way to make it fun/ relaxed, while still actually teaching you a new skill. Shuck yeah! (sorry, had to)
