Now that it's ok to eat oysters year-round (this story busts the myth that the shellfish should only be consumed in months with "r" in them), it's safe to plan this group event in any season. An activity called A Shucking Good Time is offered at the seaside Delta Hotels Virginia Beach Bayfront Suites, through the property's Tin Cup Kitchen + Oyster Bar. Up to 25 participants learn how the mollusks are farmed, the difference between east coast and west coast oysters, their unique flavor profiles, and which wines pair best with them. Larger groups can be split into two sessions. The event starts at $45 per person at the 295-room property, which offers 12,257 square feet of meeting space.
