Airlie Gardens Oyster Roast coming

If you like oysters, there is a way to get your fill and help support one of North Carolina’s natural treasures. Tickets are on sale for Airlie Gardens annual low country Oyster Roast October 17th. Proceeds from the event go to supporting Airlie's environmental education program. Airlie Gardens director Jim McDaniel says there is plenty to do after you enjoy all the oysters and barbeque you can eat. "After the meal we dance the rest of the night away. We have the Imitations, which is a fabulous local dance band. They are tremendous. They draw such a big crowd. The atmosphere is good, too. It's underneath the Airlie oak. It's just a really nice fall evening." said McDaniel Tickets for the oyster roast are $75 each. They are available at Airlie Gardens at 300 Airlie Drive in Wilmington. You can also get them by sending a self addressed stamped envelope with your payment to Airlie Gardens. For more information call 910-798-7709, or check out their website at

Wow.. Must bee some pretty good oysters for $75 a ticket... yet another oppertunity for Wilmington's wealthy that leaves the middle class man out of the festivities... Kind of like the azalea festival BBQ at Airlie that costs $125 a ticket... Someone at Airlie aint doin too bad these days!
