There will also be music, a create-your-own handmade Valentine’s Station and a Valentine’s Day Photo Booth. In addition to the samples available with your admission, guests will be able to additionally purchase the following for $5 each: three freshly-shucked oysters, or a flight of 3 bonbons, or handcrafted hot chocolate. Also at the event, Walrus and Carpenter Oysters will be offering oysters harvested that day for sale to take home for your Valentine’s Day (or otherwise) pleasure: 25 for $30, 50 for $60, or 100 for $100.
