Ledge Kitchen & Drinks in Dorchester offers a buck per freshly shucked oyster Wednesday nights (and Thursdays). Sit out on the patio while summer still shines, offer good for lunch and dinner (617-698-2261).
This Thursday, August 23, take advantage of Hamersley’s Bistro's Quintessential summer prix fixe, when a special menu of summer bounty whets your whistle - cold cucumber soup, grilled duck breast with spicy peach chutney, are among the possibilities ($40; 617-423-2700).
Deuxave in Back Bay knows how to kick off a weekend with its Friday night bubbly bar, when you get to sample everything from champagne, cavas, proseccos and whatever else sparkles that is not normally available by the glass.
