TROYSTER Tuesday

Join Lucas Confectionery tonight, from 5pm until 8pm, for another TROYSTER Tuesday. Tonight’s oysters hail from Buzzard’s Bay, MA.

Kettle Cove, Cape Cod

Grown in Indian Cove where natural spring waters flow and combine with the cool, clear saltwater of Buzzards Bay.  These waters produce a sweet, briny onset, a taste that people have come to love. 

$1.50 each.

Nine Pin Cider Works at the Confectionery

Produced in Albany, Nine Pin Cider Works is New York States first licensed farm cidery.

The cider is sourced entirely from Capital Region and Hudson Valley apples.
