Summertime is the perfect excuse to eat seafood — and Oyster House is making it even easier with their Twin Lobster Dinner, which starts tonight. It’s the taste of the season, no shore traffic necessary.
There are only two reasons why we get so giddy when soft-shell season comes around, two reasons why we like eating them at all:
Digging into them with a fork and knife — really, eating any animal whole like that — is a pretty primal experience in itself.
But let’s take it a step further, shall we? Let’s chomp into them without using any utensils at all. Let’s just stuff them between bread and rip into them like the beasts that we are. We’re at the top of this food chain, so we might as well act like it.
Okay, so there is a lot to do this weekend. With spring here, the sun coming out and people finally shaking off the last of their winter blues, it seems like everybody has some sort of event, collaboration or special menu just waiting for you — everything from oysters, beer and pies to curry rice and a total tiki takeover.
So let’s just get right to it, shall we?
