True Chesapeake Oyster Co. Big Reveal

Loads of oyster lovers filled Hampden’s newest seafood eatery for in invite-only party…getting first sight – and first slurp – before it would open for business the next day in its Whitehall Mill home.

Guests enjoyed a great night exploring the premises and socializing.
The evening’s oyster shuckers were kept busy…
…and guests were kept happy.
