Shaw's Crab House is ringing in the fall season with their 23rd annual Royster with the Oyster Festival, Oct. 10 through 14. Participating locations include River North as well as the Schaumburg spot. With nightly oyster specials and a penchant to party, Shaw's style, you'll want to drop by.

The weeklong party started with 50 cent Oyster Monday, so if you missed it, don't worry, there's plenty more. Throughout the week, live music will be featured every night complete with Oyster Hall-of-Fame presentations and nightly Slurp-Off competitions at 6 p.m.

The culminating celebration on Friday Oct. 14 will also feature the famous tent party from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. in front of Shaw's River North location on Hubbard Street. For a $10 entry fee, you can indulge in food and libations along with live music, including Chicago groups Special 20's, Brother John and Linsey Alexander, not to mention celebrity guest DJ and emcee Lin Brehmer from WXRT.
