Billion Oyster Social
July 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$30
Watch the sunset over the Manhattan skyline aboard Pilot, the historic wooden schooner turned floating oyster bar, at the Billion Oyster Project’s next Oyster Social on Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. This tasting includes a selection of a half-dozen oysters with beverage pairings prepared with Tabasco and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
The oysters will be selected and prepared in a variety of ways by Chef Kerry Heffernan. Dotted through the tasting will be discussions on the oyster pairings, oyster’s role in the ecology and history of New York, and an overview of the Billion Oyster Project and how to get involved.
Pilot is a valued restaurant partner of the Billion Oyster Project Shell Collection Program. Pilot donates its shells to support BOP’s mission to restore a billion live oysters to New York Harbor. The recycled oyster shells from the social will act as a growing substrate for thousands of oysters.
This is a weather permitting event. In the case of inclement weather, a rain date will be set.
