Celebrating National Oyster Day With An Oyster House Oyster Dinner


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.

Oyster House Guide to Pairing Cocktails with Oysters

Brickhouse Punch

There are very few things in the world that make as much sense as oysters in the summertime. It’s easy math; it’s common sense; it’s comfort and splendor at the same time. Oyster House on Sansom is ready for summer.

If you go for happy hour, you’ll get $1 oysters, $3 drafts (PBC Kenzinger), $3 shooters, and $5 cocktails (Brickhouse Punch). And that’s all well and good, but sometimes, when you’re feeling good, and life’s finally got your back, spending some time and money on better oysters and better drinks will really set you free.
