There’s a whole bunch of reasons not to head home after work this week. Actually for the next couple of weeks, from March 1-14, the bars and restaurants of Old Pasadena want to make you happy with Happy Hour Week.
Old Pasadena has created a special event that includes bars, lounges and restaurants offering super extended deals and meals for Happy Hour. Available every day, sometimes more than once a day, the special event also includes a curated “Get Happy Crawl” by Mr. Pasadena on the final day of the event, which features a visit to five of the participating establishments.
Pretty much every imaginable appetizer craving you have can be satisfied on the cheap during Happy Hour Week, from comfort foods at Slater 50/50 to tacos, sushi and elegant cocktails.
Plan to hit up BAD Sushi on Wednesday or Thursday, when you can Get Happy all day, for a selection of sushi and appetizers at lower price points as well as sake and beer to wash it all down.
My favorite Mexican place in town, El Toreo is also getting in on the action with beer, tacos and taquitos all going for a mere $2.50 from 3pm-6pm Monday to Friday.
Over at Vertical Wine Bistro, you can try cocktails or a wine flight that focuses on a specific region or let the experts choose for you.
So that you can be super organized about your plan of attack and know your options, check out www.oldpasadena.org/happyhourweek/ with all the participating places and their Happy Hour hours and menus.
