California got rid of happy hour (I looooved happy hour and also Sink or Swim Wednesdays in Florida) and also no real ladies nights allowed. Nice huh?

Landy, I wish you could come here for our election just for the attack ads.

Two years ago, the conservative (naturally) government where I live (in the traditionally Bible-belt part of Canada) tried its best to end Happy Hour in pubs here by issuing minimum prices that had to be charged on drinks.

Like the guy said:

Speaking of "How not to get elected ...", I hear that your gal is confusing ethnic groups. What's up with that?

Hey, I've been known to tip a few.

But I never, ever, ever drive at all--at all--with any alcohol in my system whatsoever.

In the good ole USA, happy hour usually means having a drink or two between work and home, and the distance between work and home is covered by car. So happy hour actually means drinking and driving cheap. And that is a good thing?

I'm not familiar with the drinking and driving cultural practices in the U.S. so I won't comment on them. I would agree that banning drinking games and overdone free dispensing of alcoholic beverages might make sense. When I think of happy hour, I just think of moderately discounted drinks.

People should never drink and drive.

My gal? I'm not voting for her, I can't believe she won the primary. Yes, she was speaking to Hispanic students and said they looked more Asian than Hispanic. She is such a train wreck that there is a tie between her and Harry Reid in polls and Harry Reid is freakin' hated in this state. I hear all the time "I hate Harry but...man, I can't see Angle in the senate". Those Tea Party types had a big rally for her yesterday in Reno and that hot lil' honey Palin showed up...Angle was a no show! She says things on the radio then they call her on it and she denies it then they play her saying it and she says 'oh, that was because I was talking to that audience not this audience'! Harry doesn't do anything, I'm not sure he can find Nevada on the map.

(We do have local tribes where the people look Asian in a good lovely way but I still don't know what she was talking about)

I can't believe that the MA Democratic party are running the same idiot who LOST Teddy Kennedy's seat to a republican in the special election.

Once, was arrogance-- the assumption that ANY Democrat would win.

Twice is just blatant stupidity.

I never heard of "no real ladies night". Is that the women of Northern Nevada who drive John Deer tractors to the bar?

I expect that lots and lots of good people will show up at the voting booths next month.

I agree Baldcci. The mark up on drinks in a bar or restaurant is very high. So taking advantage of happy hour is my way of getting back at them.

PS I herd the democrats are calling for an all day happy hour across the US on Election day. They know its the only way they will get elected this year. Smile

Kev, they may call it happy hour but it ain't happy hour unless they are rebels.

Sec. 3-12.1. Same–”Happy” hours; jumbo drinks, two-for-one; etc. All on-premises licensees are prohibited from selling or giving away alcoholic beverages under the following circumstances: (a) Serving multiple drinks for a single price or offering all you can drink for a set price during a set time. (b) Making a single price the basis for a required purchase of two or more servings. (c) Selling or furnishing alcoholic beverages after 9:00 p.m. at “Happy Hour” or a price lower than the normal retail cost. (d) Offering free drinks or reduced-price drinks to any segment of the population for any period of time as an inducement to patronize the premises such as a “Ladies’ Night” or “Men’s Night.” (e) Selling alcoholic beverages for less than half ( 1/2) the normal retail price. (f) Nothing herein contained shall be construed to prohibit the dispensing of drinks in pitchers or in jumbo sizes, provided that such pitchers or jumbo sizes shall be available at all times that the licensee is open for business and the usual, customary or established retail price shall not be reduced; for the purposes of this subparagraph, a jumbo drink is defined as any drink containing more than 1 1/2 ounces of alcohol. (Ord. No. 84-121, § 1, 12-11-84)

Al, here in Nevada they give free booze if you gamble, bars are open all night and all day, and they have ladies night if they want.

Happy Hour abounds all over California, follows the guidelines set forth in the code, and happy patrons enjoy discounted food and drinks, in some cases every day of the week. Furthermore, wines are more and more frequently sold at half price as an inducement to dine on slow nights like Wednesday. Argument there could be made it's still above retail.

Maybe Happy Hour shuts down when certain people walk in the door.

In Pennsylvania it is illegal to sell booz on election day until after the polls close. I thought that was a national law.
