Aww Shucks!

The 15th Annual McCormick & Kuleto's Shuck & Swallow Oyster Challenge at Ghiradelli Square was great fun this week. Bay Area radio personality Sterling James emceed the event while teams from local restaurants competed against each other to see who could "shuck & swallow" the most oysters in 10 minutes. The Marine Mammal Center was the beneficiary of the event, hosted by McCormick & Kuleto's Seafood Restaurant. The winning team (from Farallon Restaurant) shucked and gulped down 155 oysters - an amazing feat indeed! Afterwards, nearly 250 guests and supporters attended the oyster & wine pairing.
