Save All Your Dollars for Sunday Night Oysters at TJ's

Owner Jon Alexis will begin hosting Dollar Oyster Night every Sunday evening, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the new TJ's Fresh Seafood Market & Grill at 4212 Oak Lawn. Alexis said all varieties of oyster are game and "the music will be little louder and the beer and wine should be flowing."

Alexis parents bought the original TJ's Seafood Market at 11661 Preston Road over a decade ago. Earlier this year, Alexis opened this second location on Oak Lawn and expanded to more than just a seafood market. Now they'll be happy to grill a filet however you like, or pack it up for you to take home. Or grab a beer and a plate of oysters from the raw bar. Alexis certainly seems to be enjoying the extra elbow room.

In addition to the dollar premium oyster, fish tacos are also half-priced on Sunday evenings.

If you'd prefer to take the oysters home, here's a handy guide from Reitz on how to shuck like a champ.
