Fri, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. 
While some of us dream of long weekends, those off Fridays get rewarded at the Wayfarer (ain’t that how life goes?). For its “Summer Friday” special, get a dozen house-selected East and West Coast oysters (usually $3 to $3.25 each), plus a bottle of Vie Vite rosé, all for $55. While you’re there, try the regular menu’s excellent braised octopus or lamb tagliatelle. You’ve got all day.
