Tightwad Tuesday: Our Favorite Happy Hour Spots
What could be better for a Tightwad Tuesday than our favorite happy hour suggestions? Here are a few of our local favorites for the occasional after-work drink and appetizer. We’d love to hear about yours as well, so leave us a comment below if you’ve got one to share!
Christine Schunk – “My favorite is Bistro 33 in Davis – their daily usual happy hour only goes until 6:30, which is too early for this working girl. But, on Monday nights they have Pub Quiz nights where happy hour goes late into the evening and is pretty entertaining. Plus, some of my favorite menu items are on the half price happy hour menu, including the Salt & Pepper Calamari and the Sweet Potato Fries with Three Dipping Sauces.”
Liz Conant – “A good patio is the selling point for me. I like Capitol Garage for the beer selection and happy hour prices. And, both the Rubicon and the Tower Café have great patios and both happen to have their best specials on Tuesdays.”
Brittany Mohr – “Tokyo Fros and McCormick & Schmick’s are my favorites: Tokyo Fros has delicious, high-quality sushi rolls for half price, which honestly just can’t be beat. McCormick & Schmick’s (a client of ours) offers full meals at their happy hour and unbelievable prices. My personal favorite is the tasty $2.95 cheeseburger with fries!”
Cecily Fuller – “Fuzio is a definite favorite when I’m in the Italian mood. Their Universal Pastas (a long list, all of which look delish) are half off every Wednesday. Then on Thursdays, bottles of their featured wine are half off. Tonight’s special event is a Heringer Estates wine tasting where $10 buys you a tasting flight and one free appetizer from 6pm-8pm!”
