Raw Oysters in Austin- April 2008

As this is the last "r" month, to end the official oyster season, I'd like to start a thread of 'houds raw oyster experiences here in Cap City. Yesterday, I went on the cheap to Alligator Grill. $ 3.00 a dozen. You get what you pay for. Not shucked to order, not even fully shucked, as I had to remove the bottom "foot"(adductor muscle) from the shell. And, crime of all crimes, they rinse the precious oyster liquor from the shell. Very half-assed. Tasteless La. oysters. On to Eddie V's, $6.00 a dozen, but not even twice as good. Once again, VERY lame La. bivalves, small-to-medium, not salty at all. No distinct "taste of the sea". Went to Galveston last weekend & chowed stupendous Gal. Bay oysters, at The Captain's Table, @ $8.95 a dozen. I know that their season took a long time getting going this year (& it's about to end). Any of you 'hounds have any good raw oyster req's, esp. Gal. Bay oysters here in Austin ?
