The Big Shuck Off – At Catch

The Big Shuck Off – At Catch

Brookline Public Relations helped Catch & The Oyster Bar bid farewell for the summer as they temporarily close the doors to embark on a multimillion dollar facelift.

The award winning downtown restaurant went out in coastal fashion by hosting a premiere oyster shucking competition deemed “The Big Shuck Off – At Catch” that took place on Saturday, July 16, 2011. 

Guests and restaurant regulars boisterously cheered on local chefs and celebrity guest shuckers as they cracked open the freshest east coast and west coast oysters in an effort to win the title of “Catch Champion”.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart won graciously to Calgary Herald food writer Gwendolyn Richards and Avenue Magazine Editor Kathe Lemon in an engaging celebrity round, while Eric Geisbrecht of Meta4 Foods won the overall event.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day and celebrated with live music, cold bubbly, and scrumptious seafood canapés. Brookline was willing and able to help devour the fruits of their labour after the competition. Hey, somebody had to eat all those shucked oysters!

Catch & The Oyster Bar is now closed for renovations, and will re-open in the fall with a fresh look and menu.

Catch you later!
