Get your tickets now for the Oyster Fest, and be prepared to stand! (Kim Vu)

Just how many oysters can one eat? Our bet is on eight before it requires the full weight of a delicious, cold brew to wash it down. Luckily, you can test this theory for yourself during the 5th annual Oyster Fest at Hank’s Oyster Bar on April 21.

Hit up the Dupont or Old Town Alexandria locations between 11 am and 3 pm for all-you-can-eat oysters served a variety of ways. Check out beers from local breweries, enter the prize raffles and chat with local oyster purveyors about the fundamentals of this briny sea treat.

Chef Jaime Leeds is sure to have some of your favorite beers on tap — we think a Troegs Pale Ale will do quite nicely.

Tickets are $80 for this popular event and they sell out early. Remember to bring your comfortable shoes — it’s usually standing room only.

The Dupont Circle location of Hank’s Oyster Bar is located at 1624 Q Street NW (just off 17th Street), and in Old Town Alexandria at 1026 King Street.
