Oyster Hour

Slurp up unlimited free oysters every Friday at Richmond's Ugly Duckling.

Slurp your way into the weekend at the Ugly Duckling, with its new Oyster Hour. Every Friday in March — starting from March 8 — from 5–7pm, the Richmond wine bar is serving up free salty molluscs. Yes: free oysters.

To dig into as many of these babies as you can handle — yep, it's bottomless — all you need to do is buy a drink. So, pair the freshly shucked Pacific oysters with a Summer Spritz ($16), perhaps, or a tipple from the martini bar ($21–25), or, even, a glass of Victorian sparkling ($10).

If you need anymore convincing, the oysters, which are coming from neighbouring restaurant Noir, are ethically farmed down in SA's Coffin Bay, so you won't be destroying any bays or harbours by digging into many (many) of these bad boys. Eat yours natural, with a squeeze of lemon, or topped with a dash of Champagne granita if you're feeling a little fancy.

As with most things this great, it's around for a good time, not a long time — so head along to one of the four Fridays before the bivalves disappear.
