A woman said a man asked her out on a first date just for drinks. However, she ended up ordering and eating 48 oysters, compelling her date to skip out on paying the tab. The woman, who goes by Equana on social media, said on TikTok that she agreed to meet her date for a drink after he had been texting her for “weeks.”
Equana said she chose Fontaine’s Oyster House for the date because it has the “best oysters in Atlanta hands down.” The oysters are $15 a dozen on Tuesdays, so Equana ordered four dozen (48 oysters). Equana recorded herself slurping down the oysters on TikTok.
When the fourth platter of a dozen oysters came, “he was looking at me crazy,” Equana said.
Besides the oysters and drinks, Equana also ordered some potatoes and crabcakes. After some time, her date got up to go to the bathroom but never returned. Equana had to pay the $185 tab and later texted her date, “Running out on a tab is crazyyy.”
He replied, “I offered to take you out for drinks and you ordered all that food. I can cashapp the total for the drinks.”
Many social media users have agreed with the man. “He literally said can we meet for drinks, then you proceeded to slurp down half the ocean,” one user wrote.
“If you eat 48 oysters in a day you are a walrus,” another commented.
The restaurant’s manager, Kelcey Flanagan, told Rolling Stone that eating 48 oysters is “pretty impressive” but nothing new.
“She had she had a good time, and, you know, it was just another Tuesday,” Flanagan said of her customer. “We all had a laugh about it. We didn’t think it would go this crazy, especially being from Atlanta. You watch it and you realize how Atlanta-esque it is. I think a lot of people that maybe aren’t from here saw a little taste of it.”
“She was nice,” Flanagan added. “I just hope she’s not getting too much flak.”
