Sweet mother of mercy, but we're nuts about oysters today, and with good reason: the recent glut may be your best chance to get plentiful, cheap oysters for years to come. Find out what the weather has to do with great oysters and much, much more in Robb Walsh's featured article. And if you still haven't had enough oyster coverage (and who can blame you?), you can check out our slideshow of raw, wet oysters coming out of their shells. Oh, baby. Is it lunch time yet for Pete's sake?
Finally, Robb is gonna show you some proper shucking technique.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
