Happy Hour – Three Kings

After spending the day being blinded by a computer screen and listening to the boss carry on about fonts and spreadsheets, it doesn’t take much to make happy hour enticing. Fifty cents off a Bud Lite and some fossilized wings on a complimentary buffet? That will do just fine, thank you. Bars know this. They take advantage of your post-work desperation and get away with peddling such mediocrity. Then there is Three Kings Public House, which believes you deserve better. Here, you’ll get half off any draft from the extensive craft beer list — not just a “curated” selection of domestic swill. For noshing, they’ll provide any number of their mouthwatering appetizers — buffalo chicken ravioli, potato skins stuffed with rich spinach and artichoke or a massive platter of chorizo-covered nachos. At $4.99 a pop, the offerings here will restore your spirit after it’s been crushed all day at work. Photo by Jennifer Silverberg.
