Mark wanted a Low Country Boil and Oyster Roast for his Graduation Party. It's a Southern Tradition-
and a South Carolina one at that.
"There are two kinds of social gatherings in coastal GA and SC that revolve around shellfish. One is very much like a Louisiana boil, that involves shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, and red potatoes and is considered part of Lowcountry cuisine. Known variously as Frogmore Stew, Beaufort Stew/Boil, Tidewater boil, or a Lowcountry Boil, they tend to be milder than the Cajun and Creole cousins (Wikipedia)."

Sandy's first experience with eating oysters
1. Shuck the shell off with your handy dandy knife
2. Add some chopped onions and a shot of Tabasco (optional)
3. Lemon wedge squeeze of juice on top
4. Tilt your head back and let it slide OR scrape it off the shell
