Mobile, AL (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
In honor of its 75th anniversary, Wintzell’s Oyster House seeks funny, special and sentimental stories from guests who have experienced their first oyster, engagements, anniversaries and other significant life moments. Starting October 1st, guests will be able to submit their stories on the Wintzell’s website or Facebook page.
Wintzell’s Oyster House was founded in 1938 by J. Oliver Wintzell and initially began as a small, six-stool oyster bar. In the words of our founder J. Oliver Wintzell, “I’m proud of the Oyster House in a lot of ways. It has sentiment for many folks. It was here as kids that they ate their first oysters. And here, too, husbands have gotten their finicky wives to eat their first oyster.”
“As Oliver used to collect witty sayings from guests, this is our opportunity to collect the stories of their experiences at Wintzell’s,” says Bob Donlon, President of Wintzell’s Oyster House.
Upon gathering and review of the stories, Wintzell’s will produce a commemorative book titled “75 Years of Sentiment.” Guests whose stories are chosen for the book will be invited to attend an anniversary celebration in January of 2014.
