August 5th is National Oyster Day and the Mt. Washington Tavern is celebrating in a BIG way! From 5 PM – 8 PM, they’ll have grilled oysters on the deck, beer and oyster pairings, raw oysters, and oyster shooters. Giveaways, live music, commemorative glasses, and more! A portion of the proceeds benefit the Oyster Recovery Partnership.

So we had to ask: do pint-sized foodies appreciate what adventurous humans the world over have enjoyed -raw and cooked – for thousands of years? Well, you decide.

Stay tuned for the kids’ guide to oyster eating coming next week…
