We are always looking for things to write about for this blog. Our phones are filled with menu and food pictures. Our gmail drafts box is filled with potential articles & tips we read about while scouring the interwebs. Even when out with a group of friends for someone’s birthday, you’ll find us parsing over the menu and reading all the signs and specials, looking for an angle on how we can write the spot up.
No, we don’t make money off this blog and thus its not a tax deduction thing. Really its just about having a steady solid stream of good content and deals so we have something to write about everyday. And even with all this effort, it can still be difficult to come up with something to write about.
Luckily, I just remembered a little gem we came across last week while celebrating the recent engagement of some friends at Next Door Lounge.
Next Door Lounge Happy Hour
Tues – Thurs, 5-8pm & Midnight – 1:30am, Friday 5-8pm
Deals: $4 Craft Beer, $4 Wine, $5 Cocktails + $3-$6 plates
Unfortunately, we were there from 8:30pm-11:30pm, so we missed the hours of happiness. This meant we paid $12 a drink & $8-$10 for our dishes. But the items we ordered we all really good (see above photo pulled pork sliders with crispy onions and cole slaw, yum). And the drinks were darned tasty too, though they would have been so much more delicious were they only $5 a pop. And if you want a sweet ending to your happy hour they have pie for $3 a slice.
If you have yet to go to Next Door Lounge, its pretty cool. Definitely a good spot for a birthday party or group get together with lots of large open loungey areas to sit. When we went, there white gloved gentleman manning the door, checking IDs and passwords (required to prove we were with the party), and ushering us in and to our reserved area. Kinda cool.
