(Updated at 3:35 p.m.) Candidates for public office are getting ready for the Arlington Kiwanis Club’s Oyster Feast and Pig Roast tomorrow night. It’s the final large-scale public event before Tuesday’s election.

The annual fundraiser is traditionally an opportunity for candidates to put forth a last ditch effort to meet and win over voters. Some local officials even suit up and help serve at the all-you-can-eat event.

The event takes place tomorrow from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at American Service Center (601 N. Randolph St.). Money raised goes toward the club’s sponsored youth program and other community organizations to help children. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.

    Wow, if I was a liberal I would say this was offensive given oysters and pigs aren’t kosher.

    need more info… how much will it cost, what’s on the menu, how much per oyster.

      Unless you’re a Republican, in which case it’s $100 per oyster or pulled pork sandwich in addition to the entrance fee.

    S the oyster or the pork a metaphor for merrick or favolA?

      Pork = Faviola. That’s too easy.
      Oyster = Merrick. It sounds tasty until you figure out you’re slurping down gutted goo and pee.

        Thanks for that lovely image so early.

  • Great event and tradition in Arlington’s election process. I encourage every Arlington resident to attend this at least once.
