Twang At Oyster Bake

The primary mission of Fiesta Oyster Bake is to provide a quality food and entertainment event while being successful in raising funds for St. Mary's University and the St. Mary's University Alumni Association and working in conjunction with the Fiesta San Antonio Commission.

Fiesta Oyster Bake in San Antonio featured the Gin Blossoms, Aaron Watson, Hinder, Reckless Kelly, Ram Herrera, Two Tons of Steel, Los DesperadoZ, Mario Flores and the Soda Creek Band, Ron Wilkins, The Elijah Zane Experience, plus 30 more Texas premier live entertainment artists on five stages!
There are over 50 food and beverage items. More than 7,000 volunteers
·         100,000 Oysters (baked, fried and raw)
·         25,000 Fried Chicken Breasts (Chicken on a Stick w/jalapeno)
·         3,000 lbs. Beef and Chicken Fajitas
·         6,000 Turkey Legs
·         10,000 Hamburgers
·         15,000 Chocolate Covered Strawberries
·         7,500 Ears of Corn
·         2,500 lbs. Sausage
·         21,000 gal. Beverages (beer, soda, lemonade, tea, etc.)
·         32,000 Packets of Twang Beer Salt
·         96 Bottles of Twang Beer Salt
The overall the event was a success, Oyster Bake was a great opportunity to hit our target demographic.  We were able to be place at 20 beer booths for Oyster Bake Patrons to grab as they please.  At times some of the volunteers working the beer booth encouraged the use of Twang Beer Salt. 
Although there were almost 80,000 attendees at Oyster Bake, there were other specialty beers companying Miller Lite like Blue Moon and Shiner Bock that did not pair with Twang Beer Salt.  That being said Twang boxes were beginning to empty fast the second day.
