Tasty Tuesdays: Best Happy Hour

Happy Tuesday! What are you doing for Happy Hour tonight? What is your favorite spot to meet a group of friends? Today’s topic made me think of some of my favorite sitcoms.
Where do you and your friends like to hang out and why? During my over five years in Austin, some places my friends and I have enjoyed gathering include:

In these tough economic times, we are lucky to live in a city like Austin where there is lots to do without spending outrageous sums of money. Forbes magazine just ranked Austin #1 in terms of residents getting the best value for their money.
