I am pleased to be hosting a giveaway for a VIP Package for two to the 5th Annual Greenport Shellabration the first weekend of December. This unique culinary experience will take place from 12-4 p.m. December 3 & 4, 2016. Wristbands will gain participants access to Greenport’s finest restaurants to enjoy local shellfish, wine, and beer offerings during a weekend long restaurant walk, in support of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s shellfish restoration and community stewardship projects-specifically the Back to the Bays Initiative, and SPAT (Suffolk Project in Aquaculture Training) Program. The giveaway will end on Wednesday, November 30th at 11 p.m. EST and one winner will be drawn randomly soon after.
The VIP package will include a burlap gift sack, Shellabration wine glass, oyster themed notecards and a pair of wristbands. The package will be available for pick up at the check in locations for the winner to claim during Shellabration weekend.
Participating restaurants will offer $5 tapas sized offerings featuring local shellfish, paired with $3 tasting pours of local wine and craft beer (full glass options available). Additionally, local shops will be offering special promotions for Shellabration participants, making for a wonderful weekend of eating, drinking and shopping local, all in support of our local marine environment!

If you wish to purchase wristbands, they are available for $20-General Admission until November 27th when the price will increase to $25. Pre-purchased wristbands will be available for pick up at Greenport Harbor Brewing Co.’s location on Carpenter Street. Upon check-in, guests will receive their welcome package along with a complimentary craft beer courtesy of Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and a shellfish sampling of local clams and oysters from the SPAT Program raw bar!
All proceeds from the sale of wristbands will directly support the Back to the Bays Initiative and the community shellfish restoration efforts of the SPAT Program.
