But if you do need an excuse–a raison de boire, as it were–there’s this: Oyster House has decided to spend the autumn convincing you that drinking gin (and eating oysters) is a good idea. Thus, they have put together a list of over 50 domestic and internationally-produced gins, all ready to be drunk straight (oh stop making that face…) or combined into any number of classic cocktails which are perfect for drinking alongside a nice spread of oysters.
Yes, every single day of the year is National Something Day. Today, for example, is National Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day (just trust me, it has something to do with mousetraps), which falls during National Baked Beans, Hot Dog AND Ice Cream Month.
But Tuesday, August 5 is National Oyster Day. And the Oyster House is celebrating it with a 4-course oyster feast courtesy of chef Brett Naylor. It’s a one-night-only kind of thing (and happens to fall within the whole Rittenhouse Row Culinary Collective four-night event), and will run you $50 per person after 5pm.
The forces of Rittenhouse Row, Kevin Sbraga, and Danielle DelRe, of Starr Restaurants, have come together to create an event that will be one to remember. From August 4th to the 7th, the restaurants of Rittenhouse Row will prepare meals unlike the ones on the traditional menus and give you a dining experience that is one of a kind. As of right now, 18 members will participate in the Rittenhouse Row Culinary Collective, but the list is growing.
