I love Independence Day, but man, I am exhausted. If you are still recovering from the weekend after all of the patriotic celebrations, you did Independence Day right. Anyway, after a full week (and weekend) of America things, I kind of just want to crawl into bed after work. But alas, happy hour will not stop for those of us who cannot hang, and there are cheap drink specials that beg to be taken advantage of! Since we’re all America-ed out, we’re making these happy hour specials about non-American drinks. Margaritas, imported beers, and basically anything that wasn’t created here in the good ol’ U S of A. It’s not you America, its us. We just need some space — at least for this week.
You can get your happy hour on here any day of the week except Saturday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. They offer $4 margaritas, $12 margarita pitchers, and $4 beers. If tequila or beer isn’t you thing, they also offer mojito specials on Wednesdays for $4 a glass and $12 a half pitcher. Put down the PBR and Jack Daniels, and diversify your happy hour drinking habits this week.
Went a little over-board with the tropical drinks in June? I don’t blame you — its summer, so why not have five Piña Coladas in one sitting, right? But maybe its time you put down the rum. Mix things up a little bit and go the Irish route. Shenanigans has $6 pints and $15 pitchers of Irish beers from noon until 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you get there on Wednesday, the happy hour prices are extended all night, because its hump day. AND Thursday they have $5 Jäger and car bombs. Get in touch with your Irish roots, or if you’re not Irish, just pretend.
It’s named after a fun drink, so odds are its a good place to go to drink away your post-Fourth of July sorrows during the work week. Mai Thai has happy hour from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, so I would recommend getting there ASAP to take advantage of those drink deals for the full two and a half hours. Drink specials include $3 imported beers and $3 sushi rolls. They also have $4 drink if you want to skip the beer and go straight to liquor. After such a great weekend, I don’t blame you. Nothing gets rid of the post-Fourth hangover like more alcohol. because that fixes everything, right?
We have Mexican, Thai, and Irish covered, why not add in some Italian flair? Pinzimini, located in Arlington, offers happy hour from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Happy hour specials include $3.50 imported beers, $5 house wines, $8 pizzas, and $5 – $8 antipasti small plates. Pizza and cheap drinks put the happy in happy hour — brighten up your day and treat yo self to some cheap specials. You made it through the day, you deserve it.
The Black Rooster has daily happy hour specials, Monday through Friday, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.. Drink specials include $4.50 imported and premium drafts, and house wines by the class starting at $4.50. Its perfect for those of you who don’t get out of work until later but reeeeeeally need a beer once you step foot out of the office. You might have told yourself you wouldn’t drink again until the weekend but its a short week, so you might as well keep going.
