When 5 o’clock strikes, there’s nothing quite better than kicking back with friends, sipping on a crisp glass of wine, and noshing on a few bites to let go of the day’s stresses. Yes, we’re talking about Happy Hour. Dating back to Prohibition, when alcohol consumption was banned, people would host “happy hours” at a speakeasy before eating at restaurants where alcohol could not be served. Fast forward to 2016, and it’s become an integral part of many urbanites day. After all, who wouldn’t like eating and drinking at half the cost?!
