PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Reading Terminal Market hosted its 3rd Annual OysterFest Friday night.

Boasting a half a dozen pairings of fresh oysters and local craft brews selected by experts from Molly Malloy’s and Pearl’s Oyster Bar, guests made the rounds slurping up as many molluscs as they could handle.
