GO: Durham’s Oyster Specials

“As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.”

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast


Mondays & Tuesdays: Blu Seafood, select oysters 1/2 off by the dozen or half dozen, $3 beer, $6 bubbles, open at 5:00, 2002 Hillsborough Rd

Last Thursday of the Month, Burger Bach, $1 oysters all day, don’t let the fact it’s a burger joint phase you. They have a great oyster selection.
