Many food-based holidays leave us scratching our heads (National Sponge Cake Day, really?), but here’s one that we think is deserving of everyone’s attention: National Oyster Day, this Wednesday, Aug. 5. Celebrate our favorite aphrodisiac at this trio of Main Line restaurants—grab a date and check them out!
The Pour House: The Exton-based beer-lovers’ paradise will treat patrons to buck-a-shuck oysters and craft brew specials on Wednesday. But wait—the party isn’t limited to just this week: every Wednesday night is buck-a-shuck night at The Pour House! Over 30 craft beers on tap and 133 craft beer bottles guarantee that you’ll find the perfect brew to pair with those mollusks, too. 116 N. Pottstown Pike, Exton, (610) 280-7900, www.pjspourhouse.com
Estia: Take your National Oyster Day indulgence to the next level with a three-day-long soiree at Radnor’s Estia. In honor of the occasion, the restaurant will be offering $1.50 oysters, all day long, from Monday, Aug. 3, through Wednesday, Aug. 5. You may want to make a reservation to save a seat for this tasty party! 222 N. Radnor Chester Rd., Radnor, (484) 581-7124, www.estiataverna.com
Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House: The name says it all—Doc’s is the place to be for fresher-than-fresh oysters imported daily. In addition to oysters on the half shell, try Doc’s Oyster Shooter, a booze-infused shot with vodka, Doc’s cocktail sauce and a fresh-shucked oyster, or the Noisy Oyster, a fresh-shucked oyster with Doc’s cocktail sauce and Blue Point Lager. 117 E. Gay St., West Chester, (610) 429-4046, www.docmagrogans.com
