Bull & Oyster Roast

crosby_p Feb 4, 2008 04:22 AM

I was lucky enough to be invited to one at the American Legion Hall in Morrell Park Saturday...what a meal! The oysters were fresh and plentiful (in fact I was given a few dozen to take home!) and the other foods were fabulous as well...Oyster stew, Oyster fritters, plus pit beef, hot dogs and sauerkraut, all different veggies, another table full of cold cuts, rolls, sliced onion and tomato, etc. and beer! My ticket was paid for, but for $28.00 each, the price is more than worth it! Plus, a band for dancing, and lots of families having fun, and for a good cause...how can you beat it! I'm only in Baltimore for just under two years, but this is the first one I've been to...do they have them a lot in the area?

    aren't they great!
    There are a good amount, you just have to keep an eye out for them. Also, do a google search on "bull and oyster", that should bring a few up!

    here is one coming up in March:

      Also, check your local firehouse. They are famous for really great ones. I don't know what part of the city you're in but there will be one on Feb 22 at Martin's East, 9000 Pulaski Hwy at 7pm. If you're interested go to: www.gbbr.org.
      It is sponsored by the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors.

      FWIW, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is having a Shrimp & Oyster Feast on March 2. I've never been to it, but I went to their Crab Feast last year and it was fabulous. I think the tix are $40 pp.

        FYI, there's one coming up on May 10 in Parkville, Md at Heritage's Parkville Gardens hosted by the mid-atlantic great dane rescue league. It's $35/ticket. I haven't been in the past, but i hear it's a lot of fun. I know that I can easily eat $35 worth of oysters alone!
