Happy hours are typically sad affairs, limiting you to $4 wells or femi-offerings like Sex on the Beach, which'll end up costing you $4 plus a $20 co-pay. To remedy said injustice, we've asked some of the town's sweetest eat/drinkeries to whip up exclusive happy hour sips/snacks created specifically for Thrillist readers, all of which'll be available at least through Thanksgiving. Options include:
The Downtown farm-to-tablery's got an $11 pairing that boasts a Jim Collins (a take on the classic Tom 'tail made w/ Beam) and a Short Rib Burger with blue cheese & truffle oil, which has a surprisingly smooth Chunk-free texture.
LOT No. 3:
Not content with just one menu, the Eastside gastro's making every hour happy with secret anytime offerings boasting twists on two classic 'tails and six boilermakers like a Dicks' Grand Cru Belgian-style Abbey ale paired with whiskey from John Powers, also an obscure Alpha Flight member who possessed an uncanny ability to find hookers for Puck.
For five bucks, the First Hill 'za spot's got a mantastic whole milk-mozz/ pepperoni/ salami/ Canadian bacon/ sausage stuffed stromboli made with fresh hand-tossed dough and called the Maximus, though it prefers to go by The Spaniard when trying to not-sleep with Connie Nielsen.
The West Seattle Mexican mainstay gets it poppin' with $5 jalapenos stuffed w/ a blend of bacon and three cheeses, although even they couldn't hold down E Baltimore now that Prop Joe's gone.
The Diller Room:
Downtown's speakeasy-ish spot's honoring its owner's Aussie roots with a rum/ lime/ Bundaberg Australian Ginger Beer 'tail called the Dead Set Legend, an Aussie phrase for "someone who's just the coolest", aka Maximus according to Connie Nielsen's kid. Awkward!
For $7 the Belltown Spanish-style snackery's abetting a tequila/lime shrimp pintxo with a shot of tequila and Aztec Chocolate Bitters topped with an Ibarra chocolate/coffee coated rim, and calling it the Sanchez Special, which usually just consists of over-relying on Braylon Edwards.
