There are more than a few things that Steph talks about even a year after they happen, and dollar oysters at Patio top the list. As her friends know, Steph is a raw oyster aficionado, and when they are only a dollar, she can have a field day! She is also obsessed with horseradish. Who is possibly as crazy as this girl is about horseradish? Of all things.
So now that it's summer, we went to P-town with Mike, Steph's most awesome cousin (with whom we also spent the previous two weekends)! On what is hopefully to become an annual trip, it was an absolute requirement to drop into Patio during happy hour for dollar oysters, cocktail shrimp, and meatballs! We had the most outrageously alcoholic gay man for our waiter. Every drink on the cocktail list was his favorite! He insisted that if we didn't like his recommendations, he would take them off the check and drink them himself. He even said, "I hope you like them. But actually I hope you don't, because then I'll get to drink them." I think he also told Hillary to "just shut the f*ck up and order" when she didn't have her ID and insisted that she could go back to the car to get it.
After many rounds of delicious oysters (and almost sickeningly sweet cocktails), we decided to try an out-of-town, Boston-area chocolate cake for the quest. This is after all an adventure! I don't remember what it was called, but it was like a frozen chocolate mousse. Overall pretty good, but not amazing!

Patio, apparently, is where all the straight people go in P-town. For reference, in case you're interested in where else the straight girls went with Mike: we also had brunch at Enzo's, dinner at Napi's (really eclectic, and amazing veggie options), and pizza at Spiritus. The pizza was really, really good! I'm sure gay people go there too.
