Shaw's Crab House is hosting its 24th Annual Oyster Fest this fall. From October 8-12, 2012, stop by either of Shaw's locations to enjoy nightly oyster specials and to check out the Oyster Slurping Contest, starting at 6:00PM each night in the Oyster Bar at both locations. The festival culminates at the end of the week on Friday, October 12, with the famous "Royster with the Oyster" block party. The "Royster with the Oyster" party will take place from 3:00PM to 10:00PM and will be located at its largest venue yet, in the parking lot on Rush Street between Hubbard Street and Illinois, just one block east of Shaw's Chicago. The party this year is starring country crooner Lee Brice who will rock the Royster!

The big kick-off is Monday, October 8! Shaw's Crab House loyal customers and new Shaw's diners alike will enjoy a landmark Oyster Deal. Dig in on the Monday celebration at both locations: 50¢ raw Oysters on the half shell. This by-the-piece oyster special will take place in the Oyster Bar from 3:00PM to 6:00PM. Shaw's Schaumburg location will continue the 50¢ Oyster Deal the entire week-from October 8-12, 3:00PM to 6:00PM, in the Oyster Bar.

For the remainder of Oyster Fest Week at both Shaw's locations, diners can enjoy fresh, cold-water oysters at reduced prices-$7/half dozen or $14/dozen. Shaw's will feature hot oyster dishes as well, including Fried Oysters and Oysters Rockefeller.

The nightly Slurp-Off during Oyster Fest week invites participants to slurp down a dozen oysters as fast as they can, hands-free, with the goal to advance to Friday's Grand Slurp-Off at the "Royster with the Oyster" tent party for their chance to win a grand prize of $1,000. The Grand Slurp-Off will begin at 7:00PM on Friday, October 12, in the tent. The Slurp-Off Oysters are being provided by the Pangea Oyster Company.
