Cheap Oysters: Always Wonderful, Unless There Is Something Wrong With Them

It's late fall, which means that now, like all other times of the year, I'm thinking occasionally about delicious oysters. I've been reading a lot about food this past week in Secret Ingredients, that New Yorker collection of food-related essays, and there's a great one in there by Bill Buford about oyster growing, harvesting, selling, and eating. I'm planning to eat a lot of them, very soon, which reminds me of a nice deal you might appreciate if you like oysters. Fish, in the West Village, has a Red, White, and Blue Special that includes six blue point oysters on the half shell plus a glass of house red, house white, or a PBR for only $8! That's great, especially if you don't mind drinking mediocre wine. I don't. I think one time I got three specials in a row. They also give you free bread, so you don't get drunk, briny, and nauseated right away.

This sounds like a creepy advertisement, I think, but it's a great deal, and oysters are wonderful.
