West Ashley’s Pearlz Oyster Bar, which annually strives to get a jump on the local pack of oyster roast hosts, has made good on its reputation by scheduling the season’s first public bivalve bonanza.
On Sunday, Oct. 6, Pearlz will serve all-you-can-eat oysters on its patio from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Admission to the roast is $12; mimosas and vodka drinks are priced at $3.
Pearlz, located at 9 Magnolia Road, offers oyster roasts throughout the season. For more information, call 573-2277.
The Lot‘s turning one next Monday, and the James Island blackboard-menu restaurant is celebrating with whole hog barbecue.
From 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on Sept. 9, The Lot’s serving up smoked pork plates with two sides and dessert for $15. Standard dinner service will be suspended so folks can focus on the birthday festivities, which include music by Weigh Station Duo and drink specials. A ticket’s also good for $2 off Black Joe Lewis’ show at The Pour House later that evening.
In order to handle the hog, The Lot purchased a new smoker, but staffers aren’t yet sure what to call the contraption. The restaurant’s now offering a free ticket to the birthday barbecue in exchange for the best name posted on its Facebook page: Current nominees include Sir Smokes A Lot, Rusty, Boss Hog and The Lot Ness Monster. If you can do better, post your suggestion here.
Tickets to the party can be purchased in advance at The Lot.
