Standing Happy Hour

I went to McCormick’s Fish House and Bar last night after work. Me and some friends have a new “standing happy hour” and this was the first one. The attraction to McCormick’s, for me anyway, is their happy hour snack menu. Everything on the menu is only $1.95 and items include, among others:
-Chutney stuffed jalapeno peppers.
-Steamed black mussels in curry and cream sauce.
-Seafood cakes with tartar sauce.
-Crudite with ranch dressing
-Salmon croquettes with red chili aioli
-Potato skins with broccoli and cheese

The menu changes frequently depending on availability of ingredients. Another attraction is that The Cruise Room is next door. As for the “standing happy hour” only three other people showed up (of the 20 to 25 invited, not even the guy who started it showed). Maybe more people will show up the next time that I decide to go.

  1. Do people really go out in Denver? After an entire year of no social life whatsoever, except for when the law clerks worked here over the summer, I’ve forgotten how it is to live in a city. Get a drink after work. Call a friend at 7:30 when you decide to make green chili and hang out in the kitchen. *sigh* At the loft inspection, I got an insta-social life: invitation to the baseball game tomorrow, and then a party in the building. Do you work downtown?

  2. i think its so dumb when menus say crudite. its just too fancy sounding for what it is.

    id eat anything with aioli. i wish i could go to this bar too.

  3. Yeah some people go out around here. I seem to go out more than most of my friends. But then again most of my friends arn’t single and don’t work or live in downtown. It kinda seems like you have to look for things to do around here, they don’t just show up on your lap. I do work downtown and I really enjoy it.
