Edina finally approves happy hour
The last city in the metro area without happy hour has finally conceded. The Star Tribune is reporting that the Edina City Council unanimously approved the measure. That should come as welcome news to restaurants like the Edina Grill, Salut, and Barrio, who have other locations that hadn't been held back by such restrictions. Edina has no bars, but restaurants were eager for the change.
Legally, happy hour specials will be allowed starting this Thursday. There are a few restrictions: No two-for-ones, punch cards, games, or barters that promote drinking.
