Private Events

I believe that the best oyster experiences are life-changing. Imagine walking away with the power to make every oyster outing better. That is what In A Half Shell events are about.

My aim is to deliver memorable and informative oyster experiences that go above and beyond what you’ll find at a restaurant or even a catered raw bar. In A Half Shell events are grounded in careful curation and personal curiosity. Every event is expertly designed, choreographed, and executed to ensure that you are getting the best products and insight available. Your guests will leave feeling both satiated and more enlightened about oysters. Kick start your pursuit of becoming an oyster connoisseur with me!

Types of Events That I Offer
