Warning: The Alley Light’s Happy Hour could actually, well, make you happy

In Events, Food & Wine on March 23, 2014 at 10:45 am

Happy-2In an alley on Second Street, right between Rev Soup and Downtown Thai, there’s an amber light over a low-hung door that’s on in the evenings from Wednesday through Sunday. The alley certainly doesn’t look like much. And it’s a dead end. You may have seen The Alley Light as you walked by. You may have wondered what it was. You may have asked yourself, “I should check that place out.”

Well, now, here’s a good reason to: $2 drafts and apéritifs from 4:30 to 6:30pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. It all kicks off this Wednesday, March 26.

Kind of like a secret club, The Alley Light, which opened in February,  is not exactly your typical happy hour spot. So, of course, it won’t be your typical happy hour. This is a happy hour for people interested in a creative, interesting list of apéritifs, who like relaxing stylishly in some big, comfy chairs and couches, and who would like to end their day, or start their evening, with a civilized buzz on.

After that, well, there’s no telling what could happen. 😉
