Tuesday, August 5th is National Oyster Day. In celebration of the beloved bi-valve, Jax Fish House, Colorado’s oyster headquarters is celebrating the day at all four Jax locations. (Jax owns the headquarter title since they sold more than 850,000 oysters in the state in 2013!)

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper will serve as the “Head Shucker” behind the raw bar with owner Dave Query at the LoDo location, 1539 17th Street, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. Guest shuckers will be behind the raw bars at the Glendale and Fort Collins spots as well.

On August 5th, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm is a magic hour at all Jax locations where FREE oysters will be served to all. Ongoing deals for the evening include $1.25 oysters before and after that hour, $3 Dixie Lagers, $5 wine, $1 off all brews from The Post Brewing Company, and $2 Oyster shooters.

While celebrating at Jax on August 5th, guests can enter to win a “Farmer for a Day” adventure trip for two to visit the Emersum Oyster Farm at Rappahannock River Oysters. The winner will spend a day touring the sustainable, Chesapeake Bay oyster farm where Jax’s exclusive signature oysters are grown and harvested. The winner will receive airfare, a meal at Merrior (Rappahannock’s seaside oyster bar), rental car, and lodging for two people.
