I have been craving your margaritas!!! But i live in FL 😭 is there any way your bartender can message me how they make it?! So i can make it at home??? I as there back around April 9th if that helps with who possibly made it then. It is the best I’ve ever had!!!! 😋
Happy National Oyster Day!

Oysters are a Lowcountry staple and no longer have to only be eaten in months ending in "R". With so many ways to prepare and enjoy them including fried, steamed, baked or eaten on the half-shell, these delicacies deserve a day in their honor. Check out some of the top Oyster bars and restaurants around Charleston, SC to get your shellfish fix. You know I love my oysters 🦪

Some awesome spots mentioned:

What is appropriate dinner attire for Amen Street?
ENTHUSIAST FEATURE: If you think an oyster shooter has little variation, well let me blow your mind. 🤯 Meet Vince Lendacki, a.k.a. Vin, who is one of Charleston’s most coveted bartenders and on a mission to reimagine the oyster shooter.⁣

I’m fascinated by his story. He got his first local claim to fame through “The Loquation”, a rum cocktail infused with one of Charleston’s most iconic fruits, the loquat. Unique, local, and delicious are his M.O.⁣

His oyster shooters take on a new meaning for honoring and enjoying bivalves and drink. He weaves in puns, pop culture, events, and even sounds - into his shooter experiences. It’s a VIBE. As the Bar Manager at Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar, he has full creative freedom to serve patrons a new twist on oyster shooters every week. They also get to participate in the market research! If you’re in Charleston, you MUST pay him a visit. ⁣

But wait, there’s more... Rumor has it that Vin is compiling his top hits list in an oyster shooter cocktail book (but SHHHHH don’t tell him I told you). 😏 Read the full story on Lady Oyster! https://bit.ly/oystershootersandVin

Thank you, Vin, for sharing your story with us and serving up something fresh and new between oysters and libations. ⁣

Stopped in after a long day followed by a long drive before finally settling in down the street. Glad we found Amen St! The food was delicious, McKenzie provided excellent service, and we were even given a military discount. Thanks! We will definitely be back to try out some of your other menu items!
Bartender Vince Lendacki creates shot to raise funds for Waterboys charity. A foundation started by baller Chris Long and Goodwill Ambassador Doug Pitt to provide clean drinking water to Tanzania, Africa.

Available till end of February Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar the ‘Cholula Oblongata’ special features a raw oyster topped with crispy-fried chicken skins, pickles, and Cholula hot sauce. To tie it all together, the savory treat is accompanied with a Champion Brewing Company Waterboys IPA chaser. By selling the beer as a shot, Lendacki estimates they’re raising roughly $10 per can for the charity. And while he states his main goal is fundraising for Waterboys, he also cites a desire to “raise awareness and blow minds.”
