Enjoy a Pittsburgh Happy Hour with a Bunch of Molluscs
The experience will make you feel like you’re in a quiet pub nestled against the Atlantic Coast.
Bivalves are a group of aquatic molluscs comprising many of your seafood favorites: oysters, clams, mussels. They are also the only class of species (we know of) with its own happy-hour special.
Selections from an excellent roster of fresh oysters are half-off during happy hour at Merchant Oyster Co. in Lawrenceville (merchantpgh.com); the deal runs from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and all day Sunday.
Pair New England’s signature no-nonsense brew, Narragansett — also half-off — with some bivalves and you’ll feel like you’re in a quiet pub nestled against the Atlantic Coast. (This month, the weather will probably help with that illusion.)
