It’s an all-day Frenzy!

Sixteen varieties of oysters – eight each from the East and West coasts – and six championship wines will headline the menu, and the top professional oyster shuckers on the planet will highlight the competition at the 10th Annual Grand Central Oyster Frenzy on Saturday, September 29, at the Grand Central Oyster Bar (lower level, Grand Central Terminal) in New York City from noon to 4:00 pm.

Six-time champion Luis “The Mexican Menace” Iglesius will try to defend his title at the Oyster Frenzy’s Professional Shucking Championships sponsored by Blue Island Shellfish, chefs will showcase their culinary wizardry in demonstrations with public tastings, Oyster expert John Bil will hold a seminar, and the Naked Cowboy will make an appearance.

The public will compete in the SLURP OFF COMPETITIVE EATING COMPETITION (whoever slurps 12 oysters in the fastest time) and BEER SHUCKING CHAMPIONSHIPS!

The championships are co-sponsored by Blue Island Shellfish Farms and the Oyster Bar, and two dozen of the finest shuckers are expected to compete. 

The first round of the title tilt begins at 1:00 P.M. and will feature six-time champ Luis “The Mexican Menace” Iglesius from Corona, Queens, defending his title on his Oyster Bar home turf.  Second place is worth $1,000, and third place $500. 

In addition, the “Slurp Off” eating competition, and the Beer Shucking Championships sponsored by Bluepoint Brewery are both open to the public. 

Oyster maven John Bil will give a seminar entitled “The ABC’s of Oysters.” Chef demonstrations will be hosted by 9-year-old phenom Sam Wahobe, who recently appeared at the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama; executive chef  Ben Cicitto, Northeast regional chef  for Phillips Seafood, among others.
