Wise men and idiots alike have uttered the words, "Food is better when it's booze." But the intelligence of the utterer has absolutely no bearing on the truth of the matter. Booze food is better. And there are three main reasons why: 1) Swallowing takes less effort than chewing; 2) Total meal time is drastically reduced by an all-in-one solution; and 3) Getting drunk while getting fed is a few bucks cheaper. 

So if you ever wander far enough from Wynwood to see the ocean, make a pitstop at Alonzo's Oyster Bar in Key West. It's the kind of place where you can indulge your hunger and your thirst simultaneously. It's also the little brother of A & B Lobster House, so you can get solid seafood too, if you're into that sort of thing. 

For the booze foodies among us, however, there's a fine shot of liquid nutrition called the Oyster Shooter. It's a freshly shucked oyster swimming in horseradish, cocktail sauce, and Absolut Peppar vodka and it costs $8. Suck it back, order a dozen more, and that's dinner.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
