Oyster Week -- Ryleigh's oyster ball

ryleighsignThis Thursday night, October 7, Ryleigh's Oyster holds its annual Oyster Ball, the kickoff  event for the Federal Hill restaurant's annual weekend-long Oyster Fest.

The $50 ticket, which benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Oyster Recycling Alliance, entitles you to "limitless" Moet Champagne, raw oysters on the half shell, Belvedere cocktails and martinis, draft beer, and heavy hors d'ouevres.  

You can purchase tickets from any Ryleigh's bartender or server, or reserve a ticket at the door by sending a note to

Ryleigh's food is great. Their service is not so great.
