The number you should get for your party depends on 3 factors: the Oystertaining time you’d like, the number of guests, and the location. On average we take into account 3 oysters per person. The minimum oyster order is 100 oysters, and our experts will work with you to make sure that you have all the oysters and Oystertainers (oystershuckers) you need to make your event a huge success.
We take into account on average 3 oysters per guest. There will always be guests who will eat 10 oysters and some who don’t eat any. And our Oystertainers will convince some guests to eat the first oyster in their life.
A week prior to your party we will be in touch with the details including the name and contact details of the Oystertainer. On our website, you can see the whole team of Oystertainers, their picture and a word which describes their personality.
Our Oystertainer walks around at your party, mingle him/herself among the guests while he/she opens fresh oysters on the spot. The oystertainer tells something about the oysters, a fact or anecdote and entertains the guests. Their enthusiasm, craftmanship, and passion for oysters give your guests a unique oyster experience.
We only need a small space to store the cooler with the oysters and our backpack (with the oystertainment gear) and a garbage bin.
Off course, we strictly follow and respect the CDC guidelines regarding Covid-19. we have all safety measures in place when packing, opening and delivering oysters including face masks, gloves and sanitized workstations and tools. Ww do everything we can to keep you, your guests and our team stay safe.
The number of Oystershuckers depends on the amount of oysters you have ordered and the time we have to oystertain. If you ordered 300 oysters for a one-hour reception, there will be 3 Oystershuckers. If it’s 300 oysters for 3-hour party, there will be one Oystershucker.
At first glance you will taste the salty water but as soon as you start chewing your taste buds will open. There are 5 oyster species. And within each oyster specie, each oyster has a different taste, depending on the water they grow in, which type of algae they eat, the temperature of the water, etc.
