For $49.99, select one of four entree choices - merlot glazed lamb
chops, a porcini-encrusted filet mignon, 20-oz. prime rib, or if you
must restrain from red meat
in this carnivorarama, try the miso-glazed salmon. A choice of brownie or cheesecake

Oceanaire is celebrating tonight with a never-ending happy hour. Menu specials that normally run from 4 to 7 p.m. will be extended until closing time for game-day fanatics. Beer is only $3, and "specialty martinis and drinks" range from from $5 to $6. Fried shrimp, fish and chips and red chili calamari can all be yours for $5 each. A "trio" of plump oysters with mignonette is only $6, making this threesome nearly as impressive as the Heat's own Big Three.
