In the Mood for $1 Valentine’s Day Oysters at Hermosa Beach Fish Shop

BYO wine with no corkage fee also makes this an easy place to take your date

Here’s a Valentine’s Day deal that’s actually a deal. Hermosa Beach Fish Shop will serve $1 oysters starting at 4 p.m. on Valentine’s Day.  Plus, the casual restaurant/market no longer has a corkage fee for those who want to bring their own wine. Wine and on-tap local beers ($21 to $ 24 a pitcher for craft selections) are also available at Fish Shop.

This all works on a few levels. If the idea of paying $75 for a three-course meal on Valentine’s Day doesn’t thrill you, Fish Shop gives you an easy place to eat, where you also can customize your dinner by picking a fish and a marinade for your taco, salad, sandwich, or plate. If you believe that oysters really do make you amorous, even the idea of this mood-enhancing meal could get you excited. And because the deal starts so early, you could have lots of time to see where the evening takes you.

But we’re probably overthinking this, so let’s just reiterate the important part: $1 oysters, starting at 4 p.m. BYO with no corkage fee. Show up and order as you please.

That would be a good deal and a cheap date on any day, but Happy Valentine’s Day anyway.
