Words mean different things to different people. Like to some, “Marc Jacobs 90% off” is pure poetry. But to us, whisper the phrase “raw bar happy hour” and we’ll follow you pretty much anywhere. Especially to the raw bar happy hour itself.
Over on Eat. Shop. Love. NYC., there’s a roundup of downtown places where you can find serious deals on shellfish in the drinking hour. Our favorite (for the possibilities alone) has to be the package at L.E.S. Aussie joint Bondi Road, where $9.99 nets you unlimited raw oysters, shrimp, and Oysters Rockefeller (an extra $20 purchases two hours of limitless drink, not that you roll like that). This deal goes down on Thursdays; that’s tomorrow, plan accordingly.
For E.S.L.N.’s full roundup of seafood deals in the city – including $1 oysters at the excellent Aquagrill, and the return of the $20 lobster roll/fries/beer triumvirate – head here.
