Portland Proudly Wears its Crown
A new list of the best happy hour cities in the United States ranks Portland at the top. The list of cities was created by GoTime.com and was featured on CNBC.com. One of the reasons Portland was listed as #1 because it has one happy hour for every 724 residents compared to #5 on the list, New York City, which has "only" one happy hour for every 4,862 residents.
Hopworks Urban Brewery on SE Powell Boulevard in Southeast Portland, is one of the breweries featured on the website. You have to try the Black Pepper & Garlic Beer Sausage and the Pint "o" Pretzels. The sampler platter of their beers is a good way to determine which is your favorite. My favorite is their Organic Velvet ESB.
If you are in Lake Oswego and are looking for a good happy hour give Zeppo a try. Right in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego, this Italian restaurant has a great patio for outside seating. Their "social" hour menu has salads, burgers, chicken skewers, pasta and steak each for only $4.50. Give the Italian margarita a try for something a little different.
One of West Linn's newer restaurants, BJ Willys Woodfired Pizza and Cafe, is located right off Willamette Dr (OR 43) in the city of West Linn. While their happy hour menu is not expansive, their penne with vodka sauce dish is a winner. They also have my favorite local beer on tap, Laurelwood Free Range Red, for those times I can't make it downtown.
