$5 Manhattans at Copa d'Oro
I’ve always wanted to do a consistent happy hour post on here but since I’m neither disciplined nor consistent, I never did. However, when LA Weekly‘s Squid Ink enlisted me to help out with their new weekly happy hour series, I was able to rally. So far I’ve covered three different happy hours: Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach, my fave Copa d’Oro in Santa Monica and West Hollywood’s Agura. These happy hour reviews will pop up every Tuesday on Squid Ink.
Suffice it to say I’m more diplomatic there than on my own blog so pay extra attention to the grades because that’s where you’ll see the real deal about each place. For instance, Agura’s happy hour really is a C+ if not for how dead it was there when I went, but the girly selection of drinks and the mediocre food. However, if you like to have a space all to yourself and LOVE girl drinks then it’s definitely the happy hour for you.
Anyhoo, if you have any suggestions for other happy hours I should check out, I’d love to hear them!
BTW, I did start a Google calendar, a bit hard on the eyes, dedicated to happy hours around town. So there’s that for what it’s worth. Heh.
