Oysters at Upstream

The fifth annual Oyster Bash at Upstream happens 6:30-9 p.m. Sept. 20, with $95 buying diners all-you-can eat cold-water oysters such as Old Salts, York Rivers, Fanny Bays, Blue Points, Rappahannocks, Malpeques and more, plus still and sparkling wines, from La Marca Prosecco and Sella & Mosca Vermentino to Marques de Caseras Albarino and Brageon Muscadet. A portion of proceeds goes to Kids First, which helps families in need with donated items and supplies.

The event is bigger this year, having been moved into the main dining room, and will have live music and a raffle, too; reservations are required: 704-556-7730. 6902 Phillips Place.
