When it comes to happy hour, sometimes it's all about where you know! Lots of restaurants only post their happy hour details within, making it harder to find a great happy hour unless you are already eating at the restaurant in question. Most places have something going on between 3:00 and 6:00 but it's not always clear, so why not share all of the happy hours that we know in one chat?
Sometimes you just can't find the poison you're after. Maybe you're craving pineapple and the bar has no pina. Have a chocolate fix but the bartender glares at you when you ask for a mudslide? Time to make your own drink!
This year's drinking trends were supposed to surround things like coffee and flavored liquor, and those predictions did not disappoint. In fact, we seem to have seen more of these types of beverages than ever, with restaurants often creating separate, special menus designed to just feature these drinks.
It had been so long since I mixed a drink that I wasn't really paying attention when I made the margarita (on the rocks). I mixed it perfectly; I took a bartending class in my early 20s and didn't do too badly in it. I took a sip and winced. Okay, maybe not so perfect. I looked down and realized I had just used some of the crappiest tequila in my drink. I remember buying it in a pinch a long time ago for a party (we didn't even use it) and I didn't think much about it when I used it for our Fourth of July drinks. Yikes.
