In Honor of Thanksgiving, Here's Every $1 Oyster in Town

View as Map

In honor of Thanksgiving, here's a map of every $1 oyster deal in town. Why? Because there is no historical evidence proving that turkey was eaten at the first Thanksgiving, though historians suggest that oysters may have been present, as they were a staple at the time. Also, oysters are amazing, and there are few better places in the country to get them so fresh and from so close by. Plus, think about all of the stupid stuff you've bought with a dollar in the past and how much less pleasurable it was than a raw, juicy, quivering slurp of the ocean. So go eat a ton of cheap oysters on your days off. Did we somehow miss your favorite dollar oyster? Do tell via the tipline.
