19 Amazing Oyster Happy Hours in Boston

So the bad news: backward-thinking liquor laws make booze-based happy hours an impossibility here in Boston. The good news? The "liquor" in oysters is booze-free, which means you can take advantage of Beantown's proximity to the ocean and gorge on discounted bivalves all the time. Here are the details on when to hit 20 wallet-fattening oyster specials around town.
