Morrison's oyster month last month (sorry) was their annual celebration of all things oyster. There was a special 1 dollar per oyster promotion and that drew in raves of people including me.
The menu's a little bit of this and that but definitely isn't the standard pub affair. There's a little bit of cheffy thrown in the mix here and there and there's enough to get you interested if oysters aren't your think (gasp!). The atmosphere is nice and when it gets a little loud and crowded, you can hunt for a table in the outside for alfresco dining.

You see a couple of chefs rapidly shucking away which loses a lot of that brine but they were still mostly fresh and clean. Erratic shucking and stray shell shards were collateral of shucking for speed rather than precision. You really get what you pay for but who cares! Heck, they were only a dollar each!
I hear on a regular day there's a greater respect for the shelled bivalves with a much greater selection available and precision shucking but they come at a premium, as they should.
I must also note that their orange juice here is the stuff of dreams. Ask for their fresh made one I'm not sure what they do to it, if anything at all, but it's some how wonderfully creamy and really pleasant. I know that this is a very delayed post and you can't take advantage of this promotion anymore but it seems like they're going on every year. If you happen to stumble on this bar during a late night binge and can brave the huge crowds and tight quarters, you're in good hands.
