This afternoon with my VCR all set (yep, I still use a VCR) to tape the Michigan football
season opener, I went to check out the Guinness Oyster Festival on Fountain Square.
I got down to the Square just in time for the Oyster eating contest. Whoever could eat 24
oysters on the half shell first would win a 100$ gift certicate to Washington Platform, a
championship medal and the title of Cincinnati's fastest oyster-eater person...
Joe LaReau, Cincinnati's coney-eating champ took the oyster-eating title too after
downing his 24 oysters in some absolutely absurd time like 20 freakin' seconds.
And everyone who participated got a 10$ gift card to Washington Platform.
After the contest, there was more Guinness to drink, oysters to eat, music to listen
to and just a whole bunch more fun to be had. Annnd Cincinnati's premiere mixologist,
Molly Wellmann had a Bloody Mary bar all set up. What. Up? Oyster Fest is awesome...
