The Virginia Oyster Academy

Sep 23, 2017 10:00 am - Sep 23, 2017 1:00 pm

 

Urbanna Seafood & Raw Bar is hosting VA Oyster Country “Oyster Academy” sessions, you will get to touch and learn firsthand about the creatures of the Chesapeake Bay on the dock. Come aboard a deadrise boat and meet an authentic waterman and learn the history that surrounds the oyster. Watch demonstrations of oyster tonging and crab pot pulling. Try it for yourself! Tour the shucking house and view the soft shell crab shedding floats and see aqua farm. Experience what it takes to get those oysters from the bay to the table!
Next up is a Shucking 101 demo at the waterfront picnic tables. Learn how to pry those little river treasures open. Taste samples of raw oysters on the half shell – fresh from the river! Lunch is included! A choice of Fried Oysters, Crab Cake or Chicken Tenders with a side dish and drink.
 
Bring your cooler and take home fresh seafood from the Urbanna Seafood Market. Stay and enjoy a microbrew on tap or glass of wine (not included in the package) with the majestic views of the river and the cool breeze of the salty air, you might even catch a glimpse of the blue heron mascot that steals crabs from the tanks.
