Oyster Easter at Travellers Rest Plantation and Museum 

Pearls Before Wine

Pearls Before Wine
Now in its 20th year, this charity bacchanalia combines two of the Scene’s favorite things: crooked electioneering and edible bivalves. Make that three of our favorite things — but we’ll get to that in a second. The object is to crown an Oyster King and Queen from a field of eight candidates (including Brent Young, David Smith and Walker Shell for king and Anne Martin, Haylee Waddey Hall, Mindy McCready and Morelia Cuevas for queen) by heaping oyster shells on their table and offerng payola, er, inducements of a financial nature. But forget all that jazz, ‘cause all you need to know is this name: Eric England, the fourth Oyster King contender. The studly man of destiny who resembles a missing Allman Brother happens to be the Scene’s master photographer, as well as our sister publication Nfocus’, and if ever a dude deserved to be recognized as royalty, even of the seafood variety, it’s Eric. Especially if you ever want your damn picture again in this publication. Tickets are $80 at the door and include beer, wine, jambalaya, hush puppies, the much-feared Oyster Shooter, and music from Les Kerr’s Bayou Band; proceeds benefit the Community Resource Center.
Sat., April 3, 1-5 p.m., 2010
