Oyster Riot XIX

Saturday November 23rd Noon - 3 pm
Saturday, November 23rd 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Back for the 19th consecutive year, the Oyster Riot is one of the greatest parties of the year in Washington. Always held the Friday & Saturday before Thanksgiving, the Riot is DC's preeminent food & wine event. Each night, nearly 1000 people devour tens of thousands of oysters while enjoying the gold medal winners of the International Wines for Oysters Competition and grooving to some awesome tunes. If you're looking to keep the party going when the Riot ends, head next door to our sister restaurant, The Hamilton. Tickets for these shows are available now at : http://www.thehamiltondc.com/live.


The Saturday Matinee Riot returns

The Saturday afternoon Matinee Riot returns for its 4th year on Saturday, November 23rd from Noon to 3 pm. A portion of these proceeds will go to benefit the Oyster Recovery Partnership (www.oysterrecovery.org). Since it is a matinee performance, we will turn the music volume down so those who want to slurp and taste without the usual cacophany of the evening Riots can do so. We will only be selling a limited amount of tickets to the Matinee as the attendance will be about half that of the evening Riots....Other than that it's the same old Riot: Great Oysters! Great Wine! Great Time!
