Oysters aplenty -- again

Upstream's March oyster deal ($1 for East Coast oysters, $1.50 for West Coast) is over, but it went so well, there's a new deal for April: Same prices, offered 4-6:30 p.m. each Monday and each Thursday at the bar throughout the month. 6902 Phillips Place; 704-556-7730.

The illustration is by Sir John Tenniel, from Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and if you haven't read the oyster poem (OK, OK, it's actually "The Walrus and the Carpenter"), you owe it to yourself to do so now.
