If watching “Back to the Future” on Seamore’s outdoor patio isn’t your thing, the locavores at Brookfield Place’s seafood outfit have something else in store: oyster-shucking and wine-pairing classes. Beginning Monday, August 31, each 90-minute tutorial provides hands-on demonstrations in the art of shucking, tasting and pairing several oyster types to the best wine varietal. Just think of it as one of those Montauk-ready side skills that’ll come in handy at future summer soirées, or when you’re craving wine and saltwater snacks. .
Each class is $90 and includes wine pairings for four kinds of local, East coast oysters. Attendance maxes out at 35 guests to meet social-distancing requirements.
