I love Happy Hour
Dining out can be expensive. A great way to get a cheap meal and adult beverage(s) is to go to Happy Hour. Most restaurants these days offer one otherwise people will just go elsewhere. Thankfully most Happy Hour menus are on websites now. They are usually listed under menus, events or specials on websites.
