Happy Hours Keep on Comin'

By Fritz Hahn

I hope everyone got a chance to check out the massive Happy Hour Compendium on Friday. There wasn't enough room to list every deal that's worth your while, so I'm posting a few more here. Check them out, then post comments about your favorite happy hours.

Cafe Mozart
For fans of German beer, this is the happy hour to hit: On Tuesday nights, brews like Kostrizer Schwartzbier (a black beer) and hoppy Austrian Eggenberg pilsner are served in heavy, dimpled half-liter (16.9 ounce) and liter (33.8 ounce) mugs, just like at Oktoberfest. Expect to pay $4 and $8, respectively.

Clarendon Grill
Young professionals flock here daily for cheap beers, including $1.75 Miller Lite and Bud Lite, $2.25 Foggy Bottom and Old Dominion, and $2.75 Harpoon and Yuengling. The specials run from 4 to 8, although it's worth noting Thursday's "Power Hour," which offers $1 beers from 8 to 9.

The Fox and Hounds
One of Washington's legendary specials, happy hour at the Fox and Hounds is short -- 4:30 to 6:30 Monday through Friday -- but strong. For $3, you get a glass filled with rail liquor and a couple ice cubes. A small bottle of Coke, tonic, ginger ale or other mixer comes on the side. You choose how strong (or potable) you want to make it. If you don't want to get buzzed before dinner, bottles of Bud, Bud Light, Miller Lite, Rolling Rock or Yuengling are also $3.

Porter's Dining Saloon
A comfortable spot to watch sports or just hang out with friends, Porter's offers a different drink special every day during the week: half-price drafts and rail drinks from 4 to 7, followed by a different deal from 7 to close. Monday brings $2 draft beers; Tuesday (kickball night) offers $2 drafts, $7 pitchers and half-price appetizers; Wednesday has $2 Coronas; Thursday has $2 Miller Lite; and Friday's deal is $3 Foggy Bottom, Pilsner Urquell and Sam Adams.

Rams Head Tavern
The Annapolis brewpub and its outpost at historic Savage Mill offer $1.95 Fordham drafts from 4 to 7 and again from 11 to midnight, which is an outstanding deal. But when they offer free snacks from 5 to 7, it's unbelievable. Mondays (tacos) and Thursday (bratwurst) are especially worth putting on your to-do list.
