Booze happy hours are everywhere, and are an easy way to entice people to come into establishments, and hope they’ll stick around for dinner. But, my favorite kind of happy hour is the kind that involves something more than booze, like $1 oysters, or other discounts on food. Not everyone likes to drink, so it’s a great way to get a group of friends together without having to pressure anyone to get a pint of something.
One of my favorite places for happy hour in my neighborhood is at the Mermaid Inn—their “Happy Hour and a Half” runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. everyday and includes $6 glasses of wine, $5 on all drafts of beer, $3 fish tacos, and yes, $1 oysters.
Where’s your favorite happy hours spot?
