Oyster Shooters

Coming down in early May and I know a bunch of places have raw oysters and happy hour specials but not sure I've ever seen oyster shooters advertised. Anyone know who might have them?

The Half Shell Raw Bar was serving oyster shooters and giving you the neat logo glass with each one during happy hour.

If a bar /restaurant has raw oysters and liquor, they will usually make you a shooter. It's impossible to put everything on the menu - sometimes you have to ask.

Another vote for Half Shell. But like Blue said, if they have liquor and oysters, ask and most will make you one. I've found they are good for getting rid of hiccups. :-)

I've enjoyed many oyster shooters at the Half Shell. A hot surprise one night, they had a hot special of jalapeño vodka shooters! Beware those shooters are hot. I'd swap it our for just regular vodka. The shot glasses make unique souvenirs.

DH enjoyed one at Alonzo's. A very generous pour in his opinion. ;-)

try any good sushi place. They usually don't add vodka, but some roe, and a quail egg.

I had oyster shooters at Alonzo's , the oyster shucker there noticed I was enjoy myself and he served me up two oysters topped off with caviar> Gotta admitt the caviar was nasty...........But it was extremely nice of the shucker to let me try!!

Big fan of the Half Shell. We have a LOT of souvenier glasses....... We like them all sorts of ways, but, yeah, if they have Absolut Peppar of another spicy vodka, we always give that a go.

At home here we can get bacon-flavored vodka. You ought to try THAT in a oyster shooter. Never been closer to heaven....
