NGL_02OysterEatFirstPlace.JPG.728x520_q85The annual Oyster Eating Contest pits teams of four against one another for 2 minutes of oyster eating, with each team member slurping pre-shucked oysters for 30 seconds in a relay.

Teams are required to pledge a minimum of $300, and all proceeds from the contest will be donated to Irving Cares, an organization that provides essential services to Irving, Texas residents in need. The winning team receives a cash prize of $1,000, plus of course a very classy trophy… and the best part: bragging rights!

Even if you’re not up for competitive slurping, come out to eat chargrilled oysters, Black-N-Blue Oysters, enjoy drink specials, and plenty of music and fun. It’s fun just to watch the pros diving in!

Contestants must submit their application by happy hour (5 p.m.) on Friday, November 7 to Gje Greene at gje@fishcitygrill.com.
