Celebrate the Oyster in Roseland



    Everyone, clear out (or maybe pack some pajamas) -- there's an event coming up that is going to be an aphrodesiac-filled adventure. The second annual Blue Ridge Oyster Festival (200 Mosbys Run, Roseland, Va.) will let you dig into fresh local oysters from Mobjack Bay, a western shore of Chesapeake Bay in Virginia.

    It could be dangerous to consume wine, beer and oysters all in one day, but then again, it could lead to a fantastic day... erm, or night.

    Get the Mobjack Lounge package ($250/table of four) to receive admission to the event with reserved seating, along with all-you-can-eat steamed oysters. If you get the general admission pass, all food, beer and wine will be $6 per serving. 
    Devils Backbone and Starr Hill breweries will supply the hops you need, and Blenheim and Cardinal Point vineyards will serve up the wine. Live music starts at 1:30 and lasts until close. Oh, and if you have an oysters limit, there will be plenty of brauts, hot dogs and grits to munch on.
    The shucking begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 21.  Admission is $10. Roseland, Va. is about three hours from downtown D.C.
