If you didn't make it to the Lowcountry Oyster Festival a few weeks back, have no fear. On Feb. 18, you'll have another chance to get your oyster fix at SEWE's Ducks Unlimited Oyster Roast. All-you-can-eat oysters will be the star of the event, but if you're not a mollusk lover, there will also be a down-home Lowcountry cookout from 6 to 8 p.m., featuring pulled-pork barbecue, shrimp and grits, venison chili, and Southern fried catfish.
After you've eaten your weight in oysters and other fixin's, top it off with a drink from the fully stocked open bar. But be sure not to miss out on the silent auction, the live auction, and the raffles because if you do, you're missing an opportunity to score original artwork, dozens of guns, limited edition Ducks Unlimited merchandise, and trips to destinations around the world. All funds raised by Ducks Unlimited are used to conserve South Carolina's wetlands and protect their inhabitants.
A word to the wise: This may be Charleston, but dress warmly. Although the Charleston Visitor Center bus shed is covered, it's still outside and even the Holy City gets chilly this time of year.
If you can't attend, feel free to donate to the event online at sc.ducks.org. —
