Few things in life are more disappointing than arriving to a bar just in time to get your drink order in for the end of happy hour. Who can leave work, park, and order all before 6:00? Here's a roundup of some of our city's happy hours that last into the wee hours, and a few that are never-ending.
Pancho Villa: 2-for-1 margaritas and tap beers until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays ensure the post-work bitch session will last almost until the next day at the office.
The Vegas Lounge : Two Buck Tuesdays. All domestic taps are just $2 all day. You'll work up the courage to do karaoke and be singing a tuneless version of "I Believe I Can Fly" before dinnertime.
The Saloon: Rail drinks and domestic beers are just $2.50 until 9 p.m. on Wednesdays. Very, very dangerous. Trust us.
Blarney Pub and Grill: $3 taps and $4 Jameson and ginger ales until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays will certainly help you get over the midweek hump.
Rudolph's: 2-for-1 draft beers, house wines, well drinks until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday means you will definitely be ready for ribs by 8.
Tom Reid's: One of the best-kept secret happy hours in town, especially Thursday nights, when PBR tallboys are $2 all. night. long.
Red Dragon: Monday to Wednesday they have beers for $2.50 until 7 p.m., but a word to the wise: Don't eat there.
8th Street Grill: Fridays are honored with jumbo, and we do mean jumbo, Long Island iced teas until 7 p.m. -- just in case you're feeling 21 again.
The Eagle: The only place in town to get 3-for-1s until 7 p.m. on Fridays. Bonus: You can drink them outside on the patio,
Club Jaeger: 2-for-1 rail drinks and domestic tap beers until 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday means you will be ready to dance yourself silly at Transmission on Wednesdays.
Others we missed that go until 7 p.m. or later?
