Happy Hours This Week! [May 2-6]

This week is packed with all kinds of sports playoffs: soccer, hockey, basketball, and don’t forget the Nats games!   If you are going to be outside of the DC area, specifically around Tyson’s Corner, Vienna, and McLean, we suggest these Five Happy Hour joints to try this week!


Seasons 52

Monday is going to be the hottest day of the week, high of 80 degrees!  Once you step into Seasons 52 you will be greeted by the friendliest staff.  While serving some of the tastiest meals and drinks, Seasons 52 offers sunset happy hour from 4 – 6:30 pm.  You can order from their $5 small plate menu, and I highly suggest their duck wing lollipops.

The Cavs are playing the Hawks and the Caps will try to get their lead back from the Penguins.  These games start at 7:30 and 8.  Before the game time, you should order one of the best Moscow mules in town, Prairie Mule.  For $8, you will not regret this refreshing and well-balanced drink.

Caboose Brewing

Soccer fans know Bayern Munchen needs a win over Atletico Madrid to reach the UEFA Champions League’s final.  We suggest you head over to Vienna along the W&OD and step into one of the newest and best breweries in NoVA.  Caboose makes fantastic craft beer and amazing dishes.  They have partnered with local meat and vegetable farms and serve fresh, and tasty meals.  Grab yourself a pint of Vanilla stout, pork belly or chicken-pot pie, and watch the game.  You can also stay afterwards for yoga!




Coastal Flats

Ok, here comes Wednesday packed with all sorts of sports.  UEFA soccer, NBA, NHL, and MLB!  You can enjoy the friendly atmosphere at Coastal Flats in Tyson’s Corner, while your not-so-much-sports-fan companion(s) can enjoy the mall.

Happy hour is from 4 to 7.  Say hi to Jen at the bar and try the Modelo Especial beer.  You can pair that with their sweet and spicy calamari or the spinach artichoke dip.  Still hungry?  Try the beef ribs and you will not regret it!

La Sandia

McLean, VA Map

CINCO DE MAYO!!!  Yes, and all you need is great margaritas, tequilas, tacos, and guacamole.  You can find all those goodies at La Sandia.  Bottomless authentic guacamole, house infused tequilas, and margaritas like Pepino (spicy serrano pepper infused tequila, blanco agave nectar with fresh lime and cucumber!) will keep you company while you enjoy their live Mexican band from 4 pm.  Oh and I have no regrets in finishing 2 bowls of their rustic salsa with 2 baskets of fresh and warm thin nachos!

Happy hour is from 4 till 9 at the bar!  Mondays you can get Mucho Nachos for $5, Tuesdays get tacos for $2, and get the bottomless guacamole for $5 all week long.

I found Matchbox while I was looking for a hot brunch spot in Fairfax.  It remains as one of my top choices for Saturday and Sunday brunches.  The great news is that their delicious menu is offered at happy hour on weekdays from 3 to 6 pm also.  My favorite drink is the “Patio Pounder” Lemonade.  House infused watermelon vodka mixed with lemonade and garnished with fresh watermelon make up this house favorite.  If you like a spicy Bloody Mary, try “the 6” Bloody Mary and ask for extra tabasco!   While you can enjoy the fried calamari with jalapeno jelly from the happy hour menu, I highly suggest you try the Bloody Mary burger.  Order it medium and let your mind fly into happy places!  Oh and don’t forget to watch the Nats playing the Cubs at 2:20 pm.
