On Dec. 8 and 9, Greenport will be celebrating the stellar seafood of the Peconic Bay in a “Shellabration” restaurant walk. Eleven of the town’s best eateries — Biere, First and South, North Fork Oyster Co., Noah’s, Scrimshaw among them — will be participating, as well as vineyards including One Woman Wines, Paumanok and Shinn Estate. Click here for the full list.

Here’s how it works: Report to Greenport Harbor Brewing (234 Carpenter St.) any time after noon on either day. For $10 you’ll receive a glass of Greenport Harbor Ale and a sampling from the raw bar. You’ll also get a wristband and a map after which you can wander around Greenport, stopping at each of the 11 restaurants where $5 will buy you tapas-sized dishes featuring scallops, oysters and clams. Glasses of local wine will be $3. The festivities end at 5 p.m., but if you partake on Saturday, your wristband entitles you to dig in again on Sunday.

Profits from wristband sales will benefit the Southold Project in Aquaculture Training (SPAT), a program to restore shellfish to local waters and to increase community involvement in aquaculture. A portion of the proceeds will also be used for the renovation of the Greenport American Legion skating rink.

For more information or to buy a wristband in advance, go to shellabration.li.
