Oyster Night

On Thursday, September 10 a unique event (400 years in the making) will take place at Jimmy's No. 43. Slow Food NYC and Slow Food Amsterdam will be celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage to New York by indulging in locally harvested oysters and regional beer.

At Jimmy's No. 43, there will be a $5.00 admission which will serve as a donation to our friends at Slow Food NYC. Ommegang will be on tap and $4 will get you a plate of 3 oysters- including Peconic Pearls, from the Peconic Estuary of the East End of Long Island, and Mystics, from the Mystic River Estuary of Connecticut. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the oysters will benefit the efforts of the Peconic Land Trust, preserving the worked farms and waters of the East End of Long Island.

Call for table reservations or first come, first served at the door.

Dear Mr. President,

One of the strengths of our nation is regional diversity and rivalry. You made a big statement when you wore the Chicago White Sox jersey to the all star game: it's ok to root for your regional favorites. We hope you will do the same with beer. It would be ok to serve some of Chicago's regional beers - like Two Brothers, or Goose Island- at one of your next sit down events. Even better, ask Michael, the owner of Chicago's best beer bar- The Hop Leaf- for his recommendations.
