$1 Oysters at Hank's Happy Hour

As much as I love oysters, they can empty your wallet pretty quickly at the average $2 a pop they run around town. Thankfully my favorite place to slurp down a tray, Hank's Oyster Bar, recently launched a $1 oyster happy hour.

From 5:30-6:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday, chef Jamie Leeds (above) is serving oysters for $1 apiece. The deal will run through February.

Wash back a dozen with a pint of Allagash White, new to the taps at Hank’s, or one of the bar's wintry cocktails, like a Spiced Pear Hot Toddy, made with Poire Williams, fresh ginger-infused Gosling’s, five spice simple maple syrup, a splash of fresh lemon sour and hot water ($11).
