The Morrison Oyster Festival - all August

Everyone's favourite mollusc festival is back for the entire month of August at The Morrison. Highlighted by the crowd-pleasing $1 Oyster Hour - every day from 6pm to 7pm - The Morrison Oyster Festival will run from 1-31 August 2014 with menu specials and one-off events.

The Morrison's Oyster Festival, 1-31 August 2014, George Street, Sydney
I've been to The Morrison previously during Oyster Hour (which, outside of the festival, is every Wednesday night from 6pm to 7pm) and had Smoky Bay Pacific oysters to my heart's content.

During the festival, it's on every evening. I can only imagine the oyster shell carnage.

Freshly shucked oysters
For enthusiasts and competitive eaters, there's an Oyster Shucking Masterclass on Tuesday, 12 August and an oyster eating competition on Tuesday, 19 August.

James Squire beer and oyster matching
The festival even has an official beer in James Squire One Fifty Lashes, which of course is a great match for briney, natural oysters.

Carpetbag steak
Rounding out the month's festivities are wine and oyster flights and chef Sean Connolly's special oyster dishes on the daily menu, including the classic 1950/60s carpetbag steak stuffed with oysters - surf and turf at its retro best.
