LITTLE NELL’S AJAX TAVERN TO HOST 2nd ANNUAL ROCKY MOUNTAIN OYSTER FESTIVAL AND BBQ

Labor Day Event to Feature Oysters of All Kinds, Music and More

Aspen, Colorado (August 13, 2013) – The 2nd Annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival and BBQ will take over the Ajax Tavern patio on Labor Day, September 2.  The party will feature unlimited oysters on the half shell, Rockefeller oysters and other creative oyster hors d’oeuvres including the famed Rocky Mountain oyster. The event is “all you can eat/drink.”

“In addition to delicious oysters, there will also be whole-roasted pork and lamb for those feeling more carnivorous,” said Sabato Sagaria, food and beverage director for The Little Nell and founder of the festival. “And for those brave enough to try, we’ll have delicious Rocky Mountain oysters -- not on the half shell.”

The event will go from 5-9 p.m., with an array of wines by the glass, beers and non-alcoholic beverages available on an unlimited basis. Specialty cocktails and liquor are an additional cost. A salad station will offer veggies, with dishes like heirloom tomato salad with watermelon and pine nuts. Tickets are $75 and are available at https://ajaxtavern.ticketbud.com/oysterfest.

The Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival and BBQ is a 21 and over event. Participants must have a valid i.d. to enter and enjoy.  

The Little Nell is a year-round destination hotel at the foot of Aspen Mountain with two restaurants, three bars and mountains of outdoor recreation. For more information and reservations, please call 970-920-4600 or 888-843-6355. Or visit www.thelittlenell.com.
