Never forget how lucky you are to live in a region where dollar oyster happy hours are possible. And look—here’s another one. Ballard spot Bastille announced today that it’s joining the dollar oyster club as of Monday, January 9.

The offering: Local Hama Hama oysters for $1 apiece with ever-changing accompaniments from chef Jason Stoneburner. And to wash these down, $5 glasses of Cremant and Chuckanut Brewery’s excellent kolsch for just $3.

The oyster happy hour will run Monday through Wednesday, from 4:30 to 6pm (Bastille’s regular happy hour is still 4:30 to 6 daily and Sunday through Thursday from 10pm till midnight).

The restaurant’s Capitol Hill sibling Poquitos has been running a series of “meet the distiller” happy hours. Not to be outdone, Bastille is hosting Hama Hama head oyster farmer Adam James at the February 1 oyster hour of happiness. And by “hosting” I mean “putting him to work shucking.”

So, Ballard. Now you have a place to go when you’re desirous of discounted oysters and can’t deal with the wait at Walrus and the Carpenter.
