Lobster bibs at the ready everyone, it's time for a feeding frenzy at the Albert Park Hotel for the inaugural Lobster Palooza! The fine folk at APH have teamed up with Chandon and Clamms Seafood, to bring lobster lovers deep-sea delicacies, washed down with plenty of sparkling wine, beer and cider.
The Albert Park Hotel are no strangers to seafood soirees; their Oyster Frenzy events have been a huge success over the last few years for anyone searching for all-you-can-eat sea molluscs. So you can rest assured you will be in exceptionally good hands at Lobster Palooza, as they shuck, shell and serve the freshest seafood around.
If you're craving some crustaceans, mark Thursday 29th May in your diary quick sticks! The main attraction at Lobster Palooza, obviously, is lobster anyway you like it; options include medallions, dumplings, rolls, salads, BLT, bisque, croquettas, rice-paper rolls, mousse and thermidor. Whether you're a purist who enjoys the sweet and juicy meat fresh from the shell, or are interested in some more inventive creations, Lobster Palooza is your oyster, so to speak.
While we're on the topic of oysters, they'll be making an appearance at Lobster Palooza, as will many other oceanic delights. If you're getting lobster fatigue, which is hard to imagine we know, there will also be a large selection of prawns, mussels, clams, crab and Moreton Bay bugs for you to sink your teeth into.
All this talk of salty seafood is thirsty work. Fret not, as Lobster Palooza has you covered on that front as well, with plenty of Chandon sparkling that will be endlessly circulating throughout the night. If it's a crisp beer or cider you're after, Little Creatures Beer and Mr Pilkington's Miracle Cider will quench that thirst. As for wine, lovely drops from Curly Flat, Mac Forbes, Leeuwin Estate and Dalzotto will also be available.
With so much on offer, we certainly recommend going in with a bit of a game plan; the last thing you need is to wind up confused with shell shock. Dad jokes aside, $79 is a pretty good deal for loads of lobster, other sea creatures, and a generous splash of premium wine and beer.
