$1 Oysters in SF around 4 today

We'll be in the city at the Sound of Music sing-a-long and my bro-in-law thought it would be fun to have some oysters before we headed to Shin Shin for Shin Shin prawns! I was wondering if there were any other places in the city where we could grab some $1 oysters than the Ferry Building. I know about the spots in the East Bay. We'll be in the Castro so anything closer sounds good. Thanks

      1. re: Cheesy Oysters

        Well I got stuck going to the mall with some teenagers but the party that was lucky enough to go to Bacar enjoyed three dozen $1 oysters -- all three of them. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Their server said the bar is usually packed and the day after Thanksgiving was pretty slow so we are thinking this might be an annual event. Thanks again for the quick reply.
