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.)
