You like oysters? Actually maybe this is more for the folks who love oysters. Love them more than any other seafood option available to people. Because if you feel that way, have we got news for you: Brooklyn Crab is throwing an oyster festival this Saturday where people will celebrate (read: eat) oysters for three hours. And to wash it down, all the beer you can drink. Yeah, that’s a good Saturday right there. (more…)

For the occasion, they’ll be serving up dollar oysters and $1 beers…and no, it’s not an April Fools prank. (more…)
