Oysters may be aphrodisiacs, but we don't love shelling out a fortune for a dozen bivalves. Luckily, lots of seafood restaurants (and other spots) are making it easy, offering day-long or happy-hour deals on oysters (and, in some cases, other seafood as well). Plus, you can use the money you saved to splurge on lobster rolls. Here's where to get oysters for just around $1 a pop.
