Portland Happy Hour: Elephants

Pre-Dance Showcase, another activity making Katie a very busy girl, Leslie, Dena and I hit up a new happy hour. During Leslie's and my last attempt to add to our suffering wardrobes we had lunch at Elephants Delicatessen, one place that is to be sure to have something that hits the spot, and noticed they have a daily happy hour from 5 to 7. 

We arrived 20 minutes early for happy hour so we had plenty of time to contemplate the menu. Although the bartenders started off a little condescending, we ended up having a fine time with them. It may be partially due to the incredible margarita's Kelly (yeah matching names) made, they included 1.5 limes, 1/2 orange, tequila, simple syrup, and grand marnier. They were pretty awesome, we all had two and for $6.50 each that's a pretty good deal!

Next we had to make decisions on the happy hour food menu, everything looked great, so our solution...order one of everything! Only $3.95 for each item, so that's not very expensive. One of everything gets you calamari, foccacia with cheese and tomato, chicken drummets, fried mahi mahi, fondue (with bread, carrots, and green apple), and fried cheese curds. Everything was totally worth it! For two drinks, and a lot of food, we each paid $20. Not bad, I would highly recommend it!
