It's almost time for Shuck Yeah!, Metro Times' ode to all things oysters. Our second annual event will be held this year from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30 at Woodward Avenue Brewers and the Loving Touch in Ferndale.

Just announced is that the morning's entertainment will be provided by the Post Imperial Jazz Band. (For the sports-inclined, fret not — we'll have the Lions vs. the Cowboys game on, too.) You can find an updated menu for the event below.

Tickets are $35 and include six drinks and six oysters, plus unlimited food samplings from participating restaurants (or $45 at the door). You can learn more or buy tickets at In the meantime, you can revisit last year's Shuck Yeah here.
