Get ready to do some serious oyster slurping next week when Gary Racks’ eateries in Delray and Boca will be offering up all the succulent little bivalves you can suck down for a dollar apiece in celebration of National Oyster Day (which, btw, is Tuesday, Aug. 5).
Actually, the “Buck-a-Shuck” special will take place at Racks Fish House + Oyster Bar (5 S.E. Second Ave., Delray Beach, 561/450-6718) and Racks Downtown Eatery + Tavern (402 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, 561/395-1662) for most of the week, all day and night from Monday, Aug. 4, to Thursday, Aug. 7. What species of the tasty little devils is up to the chef (and the oyster gods) and supplies, as they say, are limited.
So if you love you some oysters or perhaps need a little pick-me-up (as oysters are reputed to be powerful aphrodisiacs), then don’t miss Racks Buck-a-Shuck or you’ll be. . . well, you know.
