Here's a question for you: What do you call a Sunday with oysters by the pound, bottomless craft cocktails and the Funky Butt Brass Band?

The answer?

Shuck Yeah! (Of course.)

The RFT's first-ever oyster slurpfest, Shuck Yeah!, is going down Sunday at Mollys in Soulard from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For $30, attendees will get a half-dozen oysters, unlimited food tastings from Beast Craft BBQ, the Blue Pearl, Harpo's, VooDoo St. Louis and more — as well as, yes, bottomless cocktails featuring Effen and Bowmore and beer from O'Fallon Brewing Company.

And lest you've already begun hibernating for the winter, never fear: Sunday has a high of 79 degrees. It's the perfect weather for Mollys' patio, frequently named one of the city's best.

The music is courtesy of the aforementioned Funky Butt Brass Band, the beloved New Orleans-inspired jazz-funk fusion outfit. And yes, they too have earned the RFT's nod as one of the very best things in St. Louis.

You can get your tickets online via our website. We recommend getting them now — this event is highly likely to sell out.
