Seafood fans, save the date: Shuck Yeah! — Metro Times' sophomorically named oyster-tasting extravaganza — has been rescheduled. The event, now in its third year, has been moved to Sunday, Oct. 20, at Ferndale's Otus Supply.

Aside from oysters, you can also expect Bloody Marys, cocktails, beer, and food samples from local restaurants, as well as live music.

But back to the oysters: Pre-sale tickets are $30 and include six oysters, six drink tickets, and two oyster shooters — yep, an oyster floating in a shot. You also get a commemorative shot glass.
