It’s an all day frenzy! It’s a Bi-Valve Bonanza! Renowned chefs will share their gourmet wizardry with the public in cooking demos and tastings, the Professional Shucking Championships will be contested, the ”Slurp Off,” eating contest and a “beer shucking” showdown will highlight the Grand Central Oyster Frenzy all day Saturday, September 24, at the historic Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York City.

The Oyster Frenzy begins at 12:00 noon, and continues throughout the day. Sixteen varieties of oysters – eight from both the East and West Coasts – and championship wines will be on the menu during the “Bi-Valve Bonanza” at the famed eatery located “below sea level” at Grand Central Station. General Manager Jonathan Young and executive chef Sandy Ingber, the venerable “Bishop of Bi-Valves,” will host the festivities. The Professional Shucking Championships featuring the best pros from across the country, including five-time champion Luis “The Mexican Menace” Iglesius defending his title on his home turf, and the seventh annual “Slurp Off,” open to the public (whoever can eat a dozen oysters in the fastest time) are on the slate. For more information contact the Grand Central Oyster Bar at 212 490-6650 or

The Grand Central Oyster Bar first opened its doors in 1913, in what was then a brand new, state-of-the-art, Grand Central Station. With its cavernous architecture and sweeping white tiled ceilings, it evokes this old N.Y. in all its grandness.

89 E 42nd St., New York, NY 10017
