Canada is the source of many lip-smacking, cold-water oysters, including the flat Malpeque and one of my favorites, BeauSoleil, from New Brunswick. Docks Oyster Bar is gathering these and more than a dozen others, from the east and west coasts of Canada, to open and serve at an oyster festival on Saturday. The admission ticket includes unlimited oysters, chowders, other seafood, Canadian wines and beers, music and an oyster-shucking contest.
Canadian Oyster Festival, $65 to $100 plus fees, Nov. 17 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., Docks Oyster Bar, 633 Third Avenue (40th Street), 2018falloysterfestival.eventbrite.com.
