National Oyster Day
August 5th, 2019 

Calling all seafood lovers!  August 5th is National Oyster Day and Harvard Square restaurants are offering specials on the briny delicacy.  Never savored the unique shellfish before?  There is no better day to start than Monday!  Slurp Up!

Not only are only are oysters a food lover’s dream, but they are healthy too!  Oysters are low in cholesterol, and are packed with vitamin C, zinc, protein and iron – and some believe they are an aphrodisiac.  With all that goodness in one oyster, don’t hold back from ordering dessert!
