Has anyone ever been to OysterFest?

Is it the clusterfuck that I've been told it is?

    Ummm....have the restrictions on not eating oysters in a month that doesn't have an "R" in it been repealed?

    Of course, I never wear white before Memorial Day, either. :)

      I was just at an oyster roast demonstration at the Atlanta Food and Wine festival, and the chef doing the demonstration (head chef at one of my favorite restaurants in ATL) said that the whole "no oysters in months not ending in R" isn't really applicable anymore since refrigeration came on the scene. Seems good enough an explanation for me.
