Each drink and appetizer on this
pub’s happy hour list is only $5,
whether it’s a chicken and jalapeño
quesadilla or the jumbo 23-ounce
Angel City Pilsner, making it easy
to sample them all. Other culinary
offerings include the boneless Buffalo
bites, Cajun-seared ahi tuna, loaded
Tater Tots and crispy shrimp street
tacos, while Hennessey’s Famous Irish
Coffee, prosecco Bellinis and New
Amsterdam Moscow mules are some
of the highlights on the drink menu.
But the bargains don’t stop there.
Throughout the week, take advantage
of specials that can be added on top
of happy hour prices, such as two-
for-one burgers or breakfast entrees
on Tuesdays and Steak & Whiskey
Wednesdays, which feature salad,
steak, fries and
a flight of three
whiskeys for $19.95.
Dim lights and fre-
quent live musical per-
formances infuse the venue
with a traditional public house vibe
each night, and the large flat-screen
TVs adorning the walls ensure that
you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bet-
ter spot for a beer while cheering on
your favorite sports team. (949-488-
Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m.
Pull up a stool for lively conversa-
tion and flavorsome chow at this
Dana Point watering hole. The
happy hour at Jimmy’s Famous
American Tavern applies to every
section of the wel-
ment, even around
the fireplaces on the
patio and in private
party rooms. The N’Awlins-
Style Spicy Peel & Eat Shrimp and
the chipotle bourbon barbecue
baby back ribs work in the eatery’s
Southern personality, but the true
star of happy hour is a south-of-the-
border classic with a novel twist.
“Our skinny margarita is our No.
1 selling happy hour drink,” says
David Wilhelm, founder of Jimmy’s
Famous American Tavern. “Made
with premium Partida Blanco, one
of the smoothest blanco tequilas on
the market, along with muddled
orange, cucumber and mint, it deliv-
ers a really unique … flavor profile.”
