Even if you’re not an oyster-maniac who’s going to fork over the $120 for the VIP unlimited oysters and gift bag ticket (they’re sold out anyway), Meritage’s autumnal Oysterfest block party is still a fun enough time to grab the $60 oyster pass tickets and $25 GA tickets. It’s got all the festiveness of your outdoor summertime shindigs—with Summit making a special Oyster Stout, a whole pig roast, for the event and music from Mae Simpson, We Are the Willows, and Southside Aces—but with beautiful autumnal weather, a Parisian air of sophistication, and the laid back tenor of St. Easy. Pro Tip: Stock up on wooden nickles early, it definitely speeds things up. Sunday, October 14th, Noon-6 PM. $25-120. —Art Humes
