One Damn Bad Oyster Festival

by Kentucky For Kentucky |

On the evening of  Monday, February 3rd, we had the opportunity to participate in a majestic scene in Covington, Kentucky for One Damn BadOyster Fest. At this epic event, we found every type of oyster in the land, the beer flowed freely, and we cheered William Goebel, a Covington native and American politician who served as the 34th governor of Kentucky. A champion of the laboring class, Goebel was wounded by an assassin the day prior to his swearing in ceremony, which subsequently took place on his deathbed. Legend has it that Goebel’s last words were, “Doc, that was one damn bad oyster.”

Monday, we gathered to celebrate his legacy and to reenact the event of his death. For the sake of the night, we commissioned a wild and wonderful poster created by Zach Evans with BLDG. Covered in the paraphernalia of the times, this screenprint comes in a limited edition of 50 – and we only have nine remaining to sell. At $35 a print, all of the proceeds go to benefit the Covington Awesome Collective, a group that we, most certainly, believe in. Get your hands on these posters while you can!

Happy Birthday was invented by the Hill sisters in Louisville, Kentucky.
