There's something special about a bar that starts its happy hour at 11 a.m., especially one located in an area that's not particularly populated with daytime business crowds looking to have a three-martini lunch. This glorious happy hour runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, with two-for-one rails and taps. I can also speak highly of the nightly special: $1.25 shots each hour starting at 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Mortimer's isn't a fancy bar, nor is it ironic in its diviness. However, the neighbors who frequent it are friendly, the drinks are cheap, and the foosball is plentiful.
