Prior to that, it was referenced by a few different names until the United States Post Office gave it the name.

The weekend celebration will kick off at 6 pm with the award-winning Hot Summer Nights. This month's theme is "Since '66 - 50 Years of Cruising the Strip." It will include all of the regular Hot Summer Nights fun, plus '60's music blasting over the speakers and a dunk tank featuring local celebrities.

Celebrate National Oyster Day at JB Hook's

Friday, August 5, 2016 is celebrated across the country as National Oyster Day. This delicious food is a favorite at JB Hook's. It is both tasty and nutritious, so the best seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks simply had to add some to our menu.

Originally, they were an inexpensive food to purchase, so they were considered a "working class" meal. The oyster beds began running low over time due to the high demand. Once they were scarce and harder to come by, the price jumped up and they turned into a more expensive delicacy.
