Forget signature cocktails: Signature oysters are all the rage in Washington.
P.J. Clarke has adopted its own house oysters, specially developed by Virginia’s War Shore Oyster Company from -- oddly enough -- Vienna, Va. (Hank’s Oyster Bar and Pearl Dive are among the other restaurants with their own variety of bivalves.)
To celebrate, the bar hosts an afternoon-long happy hour on its patio every Tuesday through summer. The house oysters -- medium bodied, fairly briny -- will cost 50 cents each from 3 to 6 p.m., while Port City drafts will be $3.50. Both deals will also be available inside, but if you can land a spot in the sun, you take it.

It's a popular week for outdoor happy hours: P.J. Clarke's is launching a Tuesday oyster happy hour on its patio. From 5 to 8 p.m. today – and then from 2:45 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday throughout the summer – the downtown saloon will offer 50-cent oysters and $3.50 DC Brau Penn Quarter Porter. (Oysters are $1 each at happy hour on other weeknights.) P.J. Clarke's also is unveiling its own house oyster, raised by the War Shore Oyster Company on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
