Raw Oysters in DC with Baltimore Prices?

HELP! In seek of raw oysters in DC at Baltimore prices

Typically the SO and I in the R month's go up to Baltimore and gorge ourselves on raw oysters. When you compare how much it costs in Baltimore for an order of a half dozen raw oysters (in a restaurant) and hotel room with how much it costs to buy raw oysters (in a restaurant) in DC we pretty much break even when we go to Baltimore. BTW, SO can put down 2 dozen raw oysters in a blink of an eye. It's scary, I know.

But now that the SO is back in school, we are looking to save a little bit of money and I was wondering if we are missing a hidden gem in DC. Hank's Oyster Bar is a bit pricey given the number of oysters we eat so we are looking for a place that prices their oysters around what Admiral's Cup Cafe (our usual haunt) in Fells Point prices their raw oysters at. AND importantly we like to drink a couple of pints of good cold beer with our oysters so it has to be Metro accessible if it is not in DC proper.

So is this possible or is SO going to have to learn some restraint?
