Summer is Here, and So Are the Dining Specials

Maven's Two Bucks a Shuck

Maven runs all-day happy hour for summer

The new-ish restaurant on Palm Beach has started an all-day happy hour special for the summer when a lot of The Island’s residents have skedaddled up North.

From noon to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, there are two-for-one cocktails, beers and wine by the glass. Oysters are “two bucks a shuck” and the smaller summer menu still includes a cheese/charcuterie board, flatbreads, crab Waldorf, Maine lobster roll, soups, salads and more.
