Happy hour special: $1 oysters @ Esquire Grill

Now here's a heck of a happy hour bargain. Esquire Grill (1213 K St., Sacramento; 916-448-8900) features $1 oysters on the half shell each Wednesday from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. This seafood special's been running since October, and the restaurant went through some 200 oysters during last Wednesday's special, says Esquire Grill owner Randy Paragary. Now, that's a lot of slurping and shucking.

"This is a great time of year for oysters," says Paragary. "(Chef Scott Rose) is focusing on indigenous oysters from the north coast. The going rate for oysters is about $2.50 to $3.50 in a restaurant, so our response has been good."

Other happy hour specials include "5 cocktails, 5 wines by the glass and 5 appetizers for $6." For the full line-up, surf over to Esquire Grill's web site.
