I was down south just before the spill and just about lived on raw oysters (3 doz at one meal!). A lot of bars there have them of $5 or so a dozen on happy hour.
Very sad to get back here and find them nearly nonexistent or crazy priced, especially when one consider how many great New England varieties there are.
Weathervane used to have oysters and clams on the halfshell 3 for a $1, but they don't even have them anymore, like most other supposed "seafood" restaurants. If I'm lucky and feel like cutting myself one of the seafood stores in Concord has them, but tiny little PEI ones for $1 each.
