Happy Hour Ideas?

I realize it’s only 10am and it’s a little, oh, I don’t know, inappropriate to be thinking about Happy Hour when I really should be processing requisistions and monitoring expenditures. But dang it, the plans have already been laid: tonight it’s Joe’s Cellar for drinks and merriment and I couldn’t be more excited (well, as excited as one can get over drinks at a divey bar). And please, it’s not like I’m trying to trash talk Joe’s Cellar because the point of this whole entry is to advocate for the place!

Which begs the question: what divey, under-the-radar lounge/bar has the best Happy Hour in town?

I’m willing to try them all in my quest for Happy Hour bliss. I personally like the combo of exceedingly affordable appetizers and dirt cheap well drinks that Joe’s provides. Though when I’m feeling a bit more high brow if you will, I’ll venture to the Pearl for speciality martinis and blue cheese stuffed dates (yum!) at Vault Martini.

To be honest, I’m just not that picky when martinis are involved. Yuck. I just kind of gave myself a headache thinking about martinis this early in the morning. Somehow, though I’m sure I’ll get over it and be ready to rumble by 6pm.

OK! Must. Process. Requisistions. Now.

    Oooooh! I want to know more about Joe’s!

    We had a happy hour post late last year, I think, and people made some good suggestions. Let me go dig it out:

    Actually, it was really only notable ’cause of the link to Rozanne’s excellent roundup of east side happy hour spots…

    And I have to admit I’m partial to Brazen Bean – for a happy hour that lasts until 8 pm, no less!

    (what is UP with places that have happy hours that run from 4-6, anyway? Don’t they realize that their best customers probably have, um, jobs…?)

    i’m a Happy Hour Whore. Seriously. My favorite to date is the Portland Steak and Chophouse downtown though. Taaaaaasty food and a really inexpensive (most items are under $3)menu. Also, on Sundays — they serve happy hour ALL DAY (or at least most of the day, instead of those boring 4-6 happy hours). That means Sunday dinner can cost under $10!
