This is an odd tidbit, but Bevmo has free tastings on Saturdays from 2-5. They will wave the tasting fee if you make a purchase. Which you probably are going to do anyways if it’s during the 5 cent sale.
The Greek starts Happy Hour at 2PM and goes until 7. But don’t turn the channel just yet, the belly dancing show starts at 7:30.
We have mastered the art of Brophy’s ceviche. A spoonful on a saltine cracker. Then a squirt of lemon, an dollop of cocktail sauce, a dot of horseradish. A meal for 2 for $6. But you have to get there early. This place is popular. And for good reason.

So I checked out the deal for Southern California.
If you were going to go to Disneyland, California Adventures, Universal Studios, and Sea World it would cost you $459 per person. The cost of a City Pass that gets you into all four is $339. That’s a savings of $120.
Now, If you’re talking about a family of 4, you will save $480! And you save more if you buying for children under ten.
I could enjoy Happy Hours for 2 months with those savings!
There is one catch. You have a 14 day validity period. So the CityPASS is better for planned vacations. Check out the cities there are passes for.
Just something to remember next time you plan a trip. Coupon Ka-ching!
Who doesn’t like sitting above the harbor, looking at the water, and watching all the boats arriving or departing for an adventure? The Whales Tail has been around for decades has seen some ups and downs, but there is something that has not changes over the years. The chowder. The only thing that I get a little sad about, is that it doesn’t still come in a little black caldron that had 3 feet and a wire handle. And maybe it’s because I feel nostalgic about coming here as a child, but the chowder is still just as tasty.

This is one of the posts I was extra excited about. Thursday was $2 Slider night and we sure were lucky it was.
We also put in the first order of the new Chili Garlic Lime Wings. There was nothing mediocre about anything we tried.
Bombay has a gourmet selection of burgers that they also prepare as Sliders. These were not typical sports bar Sliders.
The Aztec had a Chili Relleno and a light Tempura crunch. A+ The Chuck Wagon had homemade Chili and the slice of Applewood bacon gave it nice texture. A+ The Nacho Volcano was like a home made stuffed Jalapeno in the form of a burger with some good spice. A+
Happy hour is Weekdays 4-7
Thursday Sliders are 2$
We had an enjoyable time watching the sailors eying the pretty Bartender.
The Moscow Mule wasn’t on the Happy Hour Menu but we have never had one and was curious about the copper container. It was very very refreshing! Not overly sweet or fruity. I think I have a new favorite cocktail.
This was the first time for me here. It seemed OK for me only because the Happy Hour drinks were only discounted to $5. They had a simple selection of wines beer and well drinks on the Happy Hour Menu. I had the Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc which was very nice. The pour was generous. I guess I shouldn’t complain. And the service was very attentive on the patio.
When I first arrived I asked everybody to move a table over because the guy playing guitar and singing was jarringly loud.
One of my pet peeves are: Guys who use an amplifier when everybody he is playing to is within 30 feet.
Somebody else must have said something because by the end of visit the volume was more tolerable and I was actually enjoying it.
Or, I was readjusted because of the libations.
The Nachos were pretty good. I think $5 was a fair price. We did add steak on one and chicken on the other but I forgot to see how much was charged for it. the tortilla chips tasted home made and held up to the toppings.
I’ve only found a few places or random bartenders that make good Micheladas. Here is one of the top 3. From the outside, you would never guess that there was a bar and a restaurant here. This is a hidden gem. Restaurants on the avenue are generally more authentic when it comes to Mexican food. This one has dishes that would please the native as well as the occasional enchilada eater.
We tested both Modelo Negra and Modelo Especial. We both agreed that the darker one more flavorful.
The World Cup was on in the bar side and I image this is a good place to watch futbol any time.
