OYSTERS AND GUINESS, GOING DOWN EASY

Judging by the huge crowd and gorgeous weather, Sunday’s Red Bank’s Guinness Oyster Festival was shell-cracking success. Autumnal coolness and the aromas of 25 food borough restaurants drew thousands into the White Street lot consistently throughout the seven hours of tasting, dancing and people-watching. From red’s pulled pork and apple slaw sandwiches to the Cupcake Magician’s selection of sweet creations, locals were not left hungry. Oh, and the oysters and stout flowed, too. redbankgreen was on the scene to capture the fun. (Photos by Danielle Tepper, Trish Russoniello and John T. Ward)
