It’s that time of year! Happy Hour Week in Old Pasadena is here. I’m a huge fan of happy hours as someone who has gravitated toward appetizers since long before the whole small plates thing was a trend. Hitting up a happy hour means getting to try a whole bunch of bites without having to pay a fortune. So you get just the right sized taste. And Happy Hour Week makes already happy happy hours even better because you get to try even more dishes and extended hours mean that you can better fit the special deals into your schedule—maybe even on weekends. Check out a few of the numerous spots participating:
BAD Sushi’s happy hours go until 7pm so you really can stop in after work instead having to leave the office a bit early. Then you have time to enjoy your choice of a variety of sushi, drinks, salads, rolls, tempura and other tasty bites.
Harlowe’s French Dip is still relatively new to the neighborhood but it’s got a really long happy hours going all the way until 8pm and featuring a pretty good variety of drinks on tap for reasonable prices and a couple of bucks off their bar bites.
Sushi Roku is always one of the best bets for happy hour and for Happy Hour Week they’re offering extending hours going into the night and really reasonable deals on drinks for around $5. There’s also a vast selection of cooked dishes like fried chicken sliders, skewers, tempura, and sushi rolls.
And if you’re looking for something to do while you snack, head over to the Neon Retro Arcade where you can find deals on admission as well as get some basic eats.
And if you’re feeling socialable or looking for a more adventurous way to celebrate, you can also try participating in a crawl that focuses on the drinks of your choice, whether you prefer beer, wine or cocktails.
