Join us for an Oyster Class!
Strange Bird Oyster Class – Wednesdays, February & March
7:00-8:15pm, choose a date below to register:

Join Neal Warner, oyster enthusiast, to learn about the bivalve with the cult following. You’ll learn to shuck safely, explore different species and growing regions, and leave with the confidence to serve oysters at your next party or holiday gathering! This class will not discuss oyster cookery – look elsewhere for po’boys and rockefeller. This is an exploration of oysters on the half shell. Tickets include oysters to practice with (and enjoy) during class.

We’ll have a server available to take orders for drinks to sip on during class!

Enter the regular Strange Bird entrance, let the host know you’re here for the class, and we’ll direct you next door to the Landlocked space where we’ll have our class. After we’re done, you’re welcome to join us at Strange Bird for dinner and drinks!

Strange Bird Rum Class
Stay tuned for the next one!

Rum is a beautiful and diverse category of spirits. With its four century history, far flung producing regions and styles, and plenty of misinformation floating around, it can be challenging to know where to start exploring it.

Join Neal Warner, rum enthusiast, on a guided tasting through the many personalities of rum, with emphasis on how each style fits within the culture that produces it. You’ll learn the basics of how rum is made, and the history of different styles. We’ll taste a variety of bottlings, from flagships in their categories to limited releases. This class won’t delve into cocktails much, but will make reference to how certain styles are enjoyed in their cultures of origin. Looking forward to sipping some rum with you!

Enter the regular Strange Bird entrance, let the host know you’re here for the class, and we’ll direct you next door to the Landlocked space where we’ll have our class. You’re welcome to arrive early and have dinner before the class!
