But anyway, If you’ll pardon my enthusiasm, it’s an absolutely marvelous thing. That time of day when bars and eateries offer up discounted food and drink…when drinks are cheaper and bars dish out free nibbles… there is Happy Hour!
A brief shining window, when bars and restaurants roll back drink prices, you just need to know where to go and when to go. This is a perfect chance to try cocktail creations at reduced rates, plus, it’s a great way to strike up conversation.
