Unhappy Hour

I made a date to meet a friend at NeoMeze for happy hour last night.

Neomeze's quarter-page ad in the Pasadena Weekly boasted that they were "PASADENA'S BEST HAPPY HOUR" with half off alcoholic beverages. This sounded promising because, as everyone knows, cheap drinks are the backbone of a good happy hour. Throw in some good grub, and I truly am happy for at least an hour.

The ad went on to list the restaurant's happy hours, Monday through Friday from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. My friend and I met at Neomeze on Monday at 5:30 pm, and their doors were LOCKED.

We walked a few doors down for $4.00 sangria and $5.00 tapas at BarCelona.

I called NeoMeze today and was told that their PR company must have made a mistake. I wonder what their PR company would suggest for turning an unhappy hour customer into a happy one.

(Please let me know if you have a favorite Pasadena-area happy hour spot.)

Cafe Bizou's hours are from 5 to 7, and their bartenders do it right. I think it is my current favorite happy hour.

Christina, I'll have to give Cafe Bizou's happy hour another go. I tried it a couple of years ago and thought the only thing "happy" about the hour was the restaurant - making money from overpriced appetizers. I had two glasses of wine and shared some appetizers, and the bill came to more than $30 without tax and tip.

But, if it's your current favorite, I shall happily return!

Hit up a Hong Kong-style cafe in SGV for afternoon tea from 3 to 6 p.m. $4.95 buys you entree, drink, and dessert. I'll have to post about Cafe Spot so you can see their selection in particular, but all the other HK-style cafes I've posted about do this too.

What a great suggestion, WC. I'm not familiar with the Hong Kong-style tea places. It sounds like I'm in for a treat.
