Back by popular demand, lamb shepherd Craig Rogers and oysterman Travis Croxton are reviving their storied feast at the Beard House. This can’t-miss event will mimic the pair’s annual party during which chefs gather to feast on lamb, shellfish, and moonshine, this time with the help of some talented friends and colleagues, and outstanding Virginia wine and beer.
