Mayslack's: happy hour of the week
Hours and details: Mayslack's happy hours take place Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m. with $2.50 taps and well drinks.
Venue: Since 1955, Mayslack's has been the neighborhood bar that all other neighborhood bars want to be. Housed in a corner brick building built in the late 1800s, the room has a "if these walls could talk" feel. The bartenders are friendly, the crowd is relaxed, the roast beef sandwiches are as big as your head, and the bloody Marys come with a beef stick. If you are having a bad day, come to this happy hour and we guarantee you will feel better. And this is most def the place to try a Grain Belt Nordeast, if you haven't already.
Verdict: Not for the fancy of pants, this is a bar where you drink beer or a good strong drink and talk to the people sitting next to you (the ones you don't know). If you stay late enough, you might catch the bands playing in the next room, or a gang of rowdy pedal-pub partiers making a scene. And if you happen to be the one making a lil' fool of yourself, no one will judge. In addition to the daily happy hour, Mayslack's also has some bitchen daily specials (see below):
