Monday bar deal: Wear 80s wrestling garb, get free oysters at Parched Pig


Here’s a deal that might send you to dig up that vintage Rey Mysterio mask from storage: Dress up in 80s wrestling attire and get free, freshly shucked oysters at The Parched Pig bar in Palm Beach Gardens.

And no double-knee armbreakers are required – unless you consider the nudging of the oyster from the half-shell a wrestling move. 

The spandex garb fun and puns come courtesy of The Parched Pig’s “Monday Night Raw” series. Pretty much, the deal catapults the bar’s usual Monday “a buck a shuck” oyster special to another (more surreal) level. 

Sure, you can still come as you are on a Monday night and get $1 oysters. (They’re usually priced at $2.75 to $3.50 per oyster.) But come as The Iron Sheik or maybe Andre the Giant and you can scoop-slam those oysters for free. 

The fine print: The wrestling attire will earn you free oysters once a month. 

The Parched Pig’s oyster deals are offered until from 4 to 11 p.m. on Monday nights. Management says the deal will continue “until further notice.” 

The Parched Pig: 4580 Donald Ross Rd. (Suite 100 in Donald Ross Village), Palm Beach Gardens; 561-360-3063.

Finding a lost strain of rice, and clues to slave cooking

Among the biologists, geneticists and historians who use food as a lens to study the African diaspora, rice is a particularly deep rabbit hole. So much remains unknown about how millions of enslaved Africans used it in their kitchens and how it got to those kitchens to begin with. That’s what made the hill rice in Trinidad such a find. The fat...
