Silver Spring Restaurant to Host Oyster Eating Competition That Will Give Winner a Free Dozen Oysters Per Day For the Next Year

All Set Restaurant & Bar, located at 8630 Fenton Street, Plaza 5 in Silver Spring, has announced it will be hosting its inaugural Oyster Eating Contest on Saturday, August 5th, from 2pm-4pm featuring, an oyster shucking demonstration from Owner & Head Chef, Edward Reavis. The contestant who eats the most oysters will be awarded one dozen oysters a day, every day, for one calendar year, All Set & Money Muscle merchandise, their photo posted on All Set social media, & ultimate bragging rights. All interested competitors must sign a waiver & pay a $25 registration fee. Additional details on the contest can be seen below:

Each ‘athlete’ will have 1 minute to eat as many oysters as possible. Contestants will receive a tray filled with 24 pre-shucked oysters on the half shell. If the competitor consumes all the oysters on the tray, they will be given supplemental dozens.

Contestants may flavor or dress each oyster before the competition begins, but they are not allowed to move the oyster out of its shell or otherwise touch the oysters, prior to the start of the competition.

The judges are responsible for counting the oyster shells to determine the total number of oysters consumed. Oyster ‘meat’ remaining on the tray will be deducted from the total number of shells counted. For an oyster to be counted in the final total, it must be swallowed by the contestant by the end of the time limit (i.e. not in the contestant’s hands or mouth).

If a competitor ejects an oyster from their mouth, they will be disqualified. The competition may contain multiple heats depending on the number of competitors, but each individual will compete only once. Arrangement of the heats will be determined by All Set Restaurant & Bar. The athlete that consumes the most oysters at the end of the heats will be declared the champion.

In the case of a tie, there will be a final round comprised of 2 dozen oysters. The first competitor to swallow all of the oysters will be declared the champion. Additional information can be found here.
