FoodWire: Oyster Fest Begins Early at SqWires


SqWires (1415 South 8th Street; Web site) is hosting a pre-party, of sorts, for this weekend's Stout & Oyster Festival at the Schlafly Tap Room. From 6:30 p.m. on, pay $25 (tax and tip not included) for an all-you-can-eat and -slurp oyster buffet.

Coincidentally, the RFT last year awarded SqWires Best Seafood Restaurant in large part due to its raw bar.

Gut Check will remind you tomorrow about the official Stout & Oyster Festival. And this weekend we'll have an exclusive slideshow from the event.
