Tightwad Tuesday: Happy Hour, Happy Wallet


It’s all over the news: people are eating out less and becoming more conscious of their food budgets. Love a good hamburger but don’t want to break the bank? We have good news that is guaranteed to fit the bill. One of our favorite happy hours (and an FH client, in the interest of full disclosure) is the one held by McCormick & Schmick’s – at which you will find a half-pound cheeseburger for just $1.95!


And that’s not all. If a burger isn’t what you’re drooling over, their happy hour menu includes a wide range of options. From pan-fried mozzarella to spicy chicken quesadilla – there’s something for everyone. My favorite part is that many locations have two happy hours every day; one in the evening right after work, and another from 9:30 to close. It’s probably best to call your local McCormick & Schmick’s for timing and menu details.

If you’re located in our neck of the woods, you have two options nearby:

1194 Roseville Parkway
Roseville, CA 95678

Downtown Sacramento
1111 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Business Traveler’s Tip: McCormick & Schmick’s has 94 restaurants throughout North America, so no matter which city you land in, odds are there’s a $1.95 burger with your name on it nearby.

Bon Appétit!
