Oh man do I love oysters! Seriously, I think back to ancient times and realize that figuring out what humans could and could not eat, was probably a dismal feat of trial and error. Like, what sad bastard, or series of sad bastards, said to themselves, “Alright, I’m gonna go around and pry open everything I see, eat what’s inside, and find out if it kills me.”? Whichever caveman or cavewoman (we’re all about gender equality here at at Broke-Ass HQ) figured out that we could not only eat oysters, but that they were also delicious, deserves a statue made in his or her honor.
While a the statue of “Grok the Oyster Finder” has yet to be commissioned, the folks at the Woodhouse Fish Company are doing something that’s, symbolically, almost as grandiose. They are making oysters affordable!
Every Tuesday from 4pm until closing, both WFC locations offer oysters for $1, and there is no limit to how many you’re allowed to order. I think right now the record stands at like 78 oysters! While spending $78 on oysters isn’t exactly cheap, spending $6 on them is pretty good considering how expensive the little fuckers are at most other places.
But don’t just go for the oysters, the rest of the menu is amazingly good too! The clam chowder is some of the best I’ve ever tasted and the crab cakes are better than many I’ve had in Maryland. Plus the cooks are hella quick and the servers are awesome and dead sexy.
So next time it’s a Tuesday and you’ve got a craving for something briny and slimy, head down to WFC. Also, peep this post by Secondhand Stephen to find out about another $1 oyster happy hour.
