Learn How to Shuck Oysters While Sipping Champagne

Because these are important life skills.

Oyster Social

If you've ever wanted to hone your shucking prowess, or simply want slurp your fill of $1 oysters like they do on the East Coast, Foster's Craft Cooking says, "Go Shuck Yourself."

On Saturday, Jan. 17 from 3 to 5 p.m., Jaret Foster is hosting the "School of Oysters: Go Shuck Yourself" class at Ambonnay wine bar. Instead of his usual Oyster Social pop-up where he does all the shucking for you, he'll teach you the finer points of proper technique so you can do it yourself. With oysters on the half shell averaging $3 a pop at restaurants around town, buying and shucking your own just makes sense.

During the class you'll get half a dozen oysters, three sparkling wine pairings, plus an oyster knife. The class costs $65 per person. Tickets are available here.
