“I’m a fan of Hubbard Inn for Happy Hour; from 4pm-7pm they have $5 martinis and Manhattans. The scallop crudo is quite lovely and you can’t go wrong with their $1 oysters and clams, $2 king crab legs, $2 jumbo shrimp cocktail, and $3 scallops crisp!”

“One of the best happy hours can be found at Broken Shaker at Freehand; they have such a cool space with an interesting cocktails program. Plus, during Happy Hour, you can get the chef’s burger, fries, and a domestic beer for just $15!”
