I would like to give a special shout-out to our friends at British Petroleum for crashing our Oyster Tuesday party. For years we have rocked months without "r's" and rolled through over eight hundred thousand oysters from over 13 different "mer-riors," with nary a hitch. The time of year has not mattered, the region has never given us pause. We were here to shuck oysters. We were born for it. We threw festivals to commemorate the bivalve, we threw deals around willy-nilly. Nothing could stop us.
And then along came Jones... Guess who is crashing the party (once again)? We solemnly regret to inform that, in spite of my previous post, we will be forced to increase the price of the Gulf oyster due to the current issue in the Gulf. This will affect our Tuesday special. Please don't start hoarding your canned goods and bottled water just yet -- there is a light at the end of the tunnel. At the moment, we are able to provide Gulf oysters at $1.50 per and at 5.50/9.50 on Oyster Tuesday.
And remember to keep our Gulf fishermen in your hearts and thoughts throughout these trying times. As hard as this experience has been on us, it is nearly insurmountable for many of them. This century has been very unkind to Gulf fishermen, and it is unlikely to get any better.
