Choose your own happiness at Alexander Pierce happy hour
Sometimes in life we have to choose our own happiness. Last Wednesday, I chose happy hour at Alexander Pierce on East Market Street in Akron. Their Instagram posts got the best of me. I had to check it out.
There are many ways to indulge yourself Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Daily drink specials and delicious food are a great way to celebrate the end of a workday. Sinatra style music is soothing to the soul.
Wednesday’s happy hour offers half-price glasses of wine. There are 21 selections. Since it’s National Merlot Month, I chose a $ 4.50 (happy hour price) glass of Estancia Merlot. Dining options are plentiful.
The AP $ 7 Prime Burger and fries kind of sealed the deal for me. Fresh oysters at $ 2 (each) aren’t a bad way to go either, Are you still hungry? Get an order of $ 8 of pepperoni flatbread or $ 9 of mozzalluna. The $ 11 Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail includes six of these delicious crustaceans.
The AP Prime Burger was juicy and tasty. No need for condiments – the meat is so good. Merlot is an excellent cooking wine and the Estancia goes quite well with the hamburger.
Still shy around other people? Move your happy hour to one of their four private movie suites. Stream your favorite movie while enjoying happy hour or the regular menu. They even have movie-themed cocktails, popcorn, wings, and cotton candy on the special Screen Suites menu. Four-person suites rent for $ 30 an hour, while six-person suites cost $ 40 an hour. There is a minimum of two hours. Book online at www.screen-suites.com or call 330-529-2007.
Lots of affordable ways to make yourself happy.
