The Happiest Hour: Bar Louie

One of my favorite TV shows is called Drinking Made Easy. It's a hilarious show about these guys who travel the country on a bus for their comedy tour. But in every city they stop at, they "explore the local drinking culture."

There is only one problem with the show... Some of the featured drinks aren't very wallet conscious.

It shouldn't surprise you, but I try to be as frugal in every aspect of my life, and that includes Happy Hour.

Bars offer awesome specials, some all day, others for just a few hours. Either way, my goal is to explore the frugality of Happy Hour. I will share the drink AND food specials at these establishments so that when you get a chance, you can decide if their specials are a great deal!

The first Happiest Hour post will be coming from Bar Louie in the Central West End of St Louis.

What makes Bar Louie special is that it is a chain restaurant AND it has a rewards card. With locations in 16 States the Happy Hours may vary from state to state.

Here in Missouri, Bar Louie offers $3 drafts, $4 House Wine, $5 Martinis and selected half price appetizers.

And if you think $3 drafts means your typical bud and bud light, you'd be wrong. Bar Louie offers a wide range of drafts from Woodchuck cider (which is delicious and gluten free) to Blue Moon and Guinness.

I enjoyed a fantastic Blue Moon and some delicious half price calamari! And not only did we enjoy food, friends and beer... We also got free shirts!!

And while we went to Happy Hour on a Friday, we might go back on a Wednesday for $5 buckets of beer!
