This year, Labor Day brings not only rest, relaxation, and a well-deserved day off, but also kicks off Shaw's Crab House Chicago's annual Oyster Fest celebration. Running September 7-11, Oyster Fest 2015 features five days of all-day oyster happy hour, special menu features, and live entertainment. Here's what diners can expect:

Oyster Fest Slurp-Off Competition: Competitive eaters and oyster lovers alike are invited to participate in the nightly Oyster Slurp-Off.

Sign-up for each night's Slurp-Off is available in the Shaw's lobby on the way to the Oyster Bar.
