Wintzell's Oyster House....normalcy amidst the chaos

Stopped in Mobile on our way to Big Easy from FL last night for dinner. arrived at 5:30 to an empty parking lot, having passed miles of rubber oil boom driving along the coast...
Every item we ordered was as great as always (sorry...full report later if the board wants) and by the time our food arrived the place was packed.......

When I asked how the spill was affecting their Biz she said, 'Oh, we just don't talk about it."
Then she leaned into the table, glanced furtively around, lowered her voice and almost whispered(as though revealing the plans for the A-Bomb),
"The oysters come from somewhere else. They don't tell us, but we think they're from up North.  We just  don't want anybody to know they might be eating Yankee oysters."
We nodded understandably.
I put my finger to my lips to reassure her of our trustworthiness.
As we left, passing multiple tables of New-South, thirty-something law and B. school Vanderbilt and Bama grads in their Ralph Lauren dress shirts and loosened preppy ties, I wondered if her fears were just an unfounded throwback or, if founded, did her charges know that the Yuengling draft they were enjoying was brewed in Pennsylvania?? ...
