Sunday: Surfrider Oyster Roast

Posted by Erica Jackson on Sat, Feb 14, 2009 at 1:42 PM

Charleston’s chapter of the Surfrider Foundation hosts its annual all-you-can-eat-and-drink Oyster Roast Sunday. The nonprofit organization, which aims to protect Charleston’s beaches and wildlife, will be on Bowen’s Island with endless pounds of oysters, chili, and veggies, along with copious amounts of beer for everyone’s drinking pleasure. Moonlight Ale and Toasted Beats will be jamming at the roast as well. All proceeds will benefit the foundation’s newest venture, their Anti-Plastics Campaign, which is aimed to decrease plastic bag use in the Charleston area, and to Surfer’s Healing, a program which brings groups of surfers to Charleston to teach children with autism how to surf. With their focus on the community’s ability to lend a helping hand, Surfrider Foundation is implementing the new Anti-Plastics Campaign, which is still in its final stages of planning. Surfriders plan on selling reusable bags (which are also available at the roast for only $1) at local grocery stores and keeping track of which part of town can use the least amount of plastic bags. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Las Olas, Mellow Mushroom, Folly Brewing Co., Ocean Surf Shop, Air, Charleston Watersports, and Half Moon Outfitters. —Reina Gascon-Lopez Sun., Feb. 15, 2-5 p.m. $15/advance, $20/door, www.surfriderfoundation.com. Bowens Island Restaurant, 1870 Bowens Island Road, James Island. (843) 795-2757.
