Drink It In

11 bars and restaurants with extended happy hours

Happy Hour

You look different today. Did you get a haircut? Switch up your foundation? Get a little work done?

No, no, and no... comment?

Oh. We know what it is. You've got that first official day of summer glow (it's totally a thing.) Here's something else you've got: more daylight to burn now that summer's here. Seriously, driving home after work now feels like the middle of the afternoon.
