Apparently today, March 31, is national "oysters on a half shell day." Typically we roll our eyes at made up food holidays, but when discounted oysters are involved our cynicism goes down a few notches. Here are a three places around South Florida that are celebrating the holiday you never knew about with discounted oyster specials.
KENDALL — From 4 to 8 p.m. today Devon Seafood + Steak will celebrate the 'holiday' by offering a One Buck Shuck special, which is a selection of oysters on the half shell for just $1.
