Oysters are a worthy luxury, one of those things for which it's almost better to pay more, because then you (hopefully) know you're getting quality. But we love a deal as much as the next guy, and we're thrilled that many of the city's best purveyors of bivalves have specials in which you can get $1 oysters at some point during the week. In fact, there are so many of these deals going on that it's possible to find one any day of the week. See below for a Sunday-through-Saturday guide to where to get your slurp on without spending the big bucks. Check the end of the list for specials that run every day.
