I'm really in the mood for oysters tonight and I know there are a bunch of places that have Oyster specials.
This question is two-fold:
1. What are the best places to go with good specials?
2. Do any of these places have specials that last later than "Happy Hour"? i.e. later than 7-8pm? Not everyone works a 9-5!
Go to Fish. They have the freshest most amazing oysters, but really good prices all day long. Check out their beer selection too - if they still have Lighthouse try it (from Fire Island!)
The servers are so nice and funky. Ask for the manager Todd.

Definitely fish. The red, white, and blue deal for $8 is amazing (6 oysters or littlenecks and a glass of house red/white or PBR for $8). You can upgrade the beer for an extra couple of dollars. The special only includes bluepoints, but their turnover is such that they're absolutely fresh. That said, I've had somewhat mixed luck with the rest of the menu. I'd stick w/ oysters and maybe a bowl of lobster bisque.
