Anthony’s Restaurants’ annual Oyster Games (formerly known as Anthony’s Oyster Olympics and scheduled for March 25) is canceled.

“We will be taking a hiatus this year,” Anthony’s spokeswoman Lane Hoss said. She said the big event fell too close to Easter.

The shucking-slurping-fashion-show benefit was established 19 years ago. Anthony’s bivalve events have raised more than $400,000 for Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, a pro-oyster non-profit conservation group.
