Happy Hour, Fort Lauderdale
A great tradition in the states and a particular specialty of Ft. Lauderdale is Happy Hour. This institution draws crowds out to the bars when they might otherwise not be busy. Either you get free food, reduced drinks, or both. The best is two-for-one drinks, like at Tarpon Bend. You buy a drink or beer, and they give you a wooden coin that you can exchange for another drink. The catch: it has to be during Happy Hour. You can save them for your next visit. Typical times are 4:00-7:00 PM. Here’s a shot of when my nephew was down this spring at Tarpoon Bend.
