Oysters and Bloody Mary's
Overcast skies did not hamper our attendance at the 6th annual Grand Strand ORIGINAL Oyster Roast and Bloody Mary Contest Held in the parking lot of Wicked Tuna in Murrells Inlet. I love the fact that there is ALWAYS something going on along the Marsh Walk, and if not, grab a drink and rock away the afternoon at Bubba Love!
Thousands were in attendance on Sunday. The music was blasting from a porch above the crowd. It was a full day of Live Music, All-U-Can-Eat Oysters, Local Craft Brews, Vendors, Food Trucks, and some of the best Bloody Mary's on the beach sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Fetzer Wine, and New South Brewing. Visitors could sample Bloody Mary's mixed by local families, clubs, businesses, and restaurants with a variety of recipes and garnishes.
We did not get into the oyster shucking, but I was impressed that oyster shells were collected by South Carolina DNR and will be used to replenish local oyster beds. Over 50 local artists, merchants, chefs, and non-profits offered everything from handmade clothing and jewelry to stained glass and shoppers were encouraged to bring their own shopping bags.
Proceeds from the day's event provided funds for environmental education and ocean friendly projects along the Grand Strand. Surfrider Grand Strand is a registered 501C3 non-profit organization.
