Celebrating Carmello’s Two Millionth Oyster Shucking

On Sunday, August 5 we celebrated our team member, Carmello, for a milestone at AMOB… 2 million shucked oysters and counting! Carmello has been with us for over 18 years, so it was as good a time as any to celebrate this awesome fellow!

We hosted a giveaway at our Landside location for the lucky guest that ordered Carmello’s 2 millionth shucked oyster. Our friend, Bill Partridge spent lots of time so he could be the lucky winner… he kept ordering by the dozen until he got to #2,000,000.  Bill won an exclusive t-shirt, AMOB exclusive oyster shucking knife, and a $50 gift card to Anna Maria Oyster Bar. And luckily for his wife, Debbie, the 3rd dozen had a pearl in one of the oysters! How sweet!

It was a great time by all and also a perfect way to commemorate National Oyster Day! The week leading up to August 5, is our “National Oyster Week” – with the variety of unique oyster dishes we offer, we couldn’t pin down the celebrations to just one day. Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate Carmello and enjoy oysters!
