Oyster & Wine dinner at Oceanaire tonight should be a pearl of an event
Oysters are like Crocs -- you either like them or you don't. But those plastic shoes will never be a thing of beauty, unlike oysters prepared the right way and served with a beautiful bottle of wine. Tonight Oceanaire Seafood Room will host an informative dinner that highlights both fruits from the sea and land.
