2018 Rama VIP: Oyster Stories

Regular price $ 125.00

Learn to shuck, sample oyster varieties from around the country, and experiment with beverage pairings from the traditional to the mind bending. This class is on Rama Day (4/21) from 11 to 12:30. Throughout your oyster journey, you'll be guided by some of the brightest minds in the shellfish and wine worlds, including: 

Rowan Jacobsen, James Beard winning author, who should need no introduction for longtime Rama enthusiasts. Rowan is an incredible storyteller and writer (if you haven't yet read The Living Shore, prepare to have your world changed). Every time we hang out with Rowan we learn something new about food, the world, and life in general. We're so excited that he's able to return to the Rama this year. 
Julie Qiu, professional oyster ambassador. Julie shares oyster stories on her award-winning blog In a Half Shell, organizes oyster events for New Yorkers, teaches classes online and off, co-authored the 33 Oysters Tasting Journal and New York Oyster Map. Since 2009, she's followed her passion for oysters to farms and festivals around the globe. Attending the Rama is on her bucket list, and we can't wait to show her what it's all about!  
Will Piper, New York-based wine educator and sommelier. For 15 years, Will has worked in NYC restaurants across the wine spectrum, including Boqueria, Terroir, and The Four Horsemen. His private clients include Google, Palantir and Vice, and he often pours wine on The Untitled Action Bronson Show.
Nick Dumergue, a New Zealander who has spent almost 30 years traveling the world of wine. He's made wine in 9 countries and has been a wine buyer at Harrods in London, on Super Yachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, and for importers in Hong Kong and Bali. He teaches wine Diploma students in various countries and is the co-instructor at Extreme Wine in Provence. Now based in Southern California, Nick can be found slurping oysters and sipping wines at Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica.

We don't know *exactly* what's going to happen in this class, but we do know it'll be epic. This is a hands-on shucking experience, so prepare to roll up your sleeves.

This class begins an hour before the actual Rama does (main party is Noon - 6), so we'll be in touch after you buy your tickets to let you know where to meet. 

Included in ticket price:

  • 1 Entrance to the Oyster Rama 
  • 4 tokens
  • $20 in raffle tickets
  • Rama keepsakes
  • Handy Hama Hama tote to carry all of this around

Pick up all your loot when you arrive at the Rama!
