Aw Shucks!

It turns out that a lot of people love oysters. Thursday nights' Local Oysters Local Beer Night is a happy, salty night at Jimmy's No. 43. However, last Thursday night Karen Rivara and Jim Markow came by to shuck a mind-boggling number of oysters and talk about the time and care it takes to get an oyster from its watery home to your mouth. Luckily, Nora Mulrooney of Amateur Foodie Adventures was kind enough to write about the evening from her perspective.

Jimmy's No. 43's Local Oysters Local Beer night also rated a mention on Metromix's list of New York City spots to enjoy oysters! Check out the photos and lists here.
