FIRST Food & Bar is hosting the second annual Shuck & Swallow event – a charity event that finds Vegas’ top chefs in a battle to see who can shuck and swallow the most oysters within 10 minutes. The winner will receive a Shuck & Swallow trophy… and of course bragging rights.
Last year’s winners, FIRST Food & Bar will be on hand to support and encourage. Chef Rob Ryan ate 94 oysters in 10 minutes.
Participants include B&B Ristorante, Carnevino, Dos Caminos, Mon Ami Gabi, RM Seafood and many more.
The event will see the return of X1075’s Dave and Mahoney Morning Show as emcees.
