I'll be better and my blogging self improvement plan will start by sharing a happy hour I meant to blog about in June. Dana, Katie, Jen and I headed to Jo Bar to celebrate Jenna's year in Portland and her new adventure moving back to Seattle with her then soon-to-be, and now, husband!
What: Jo Bar
Where: 701 NW 23rd Ave
When: HH 3 - 6pm
An appropriate send off always begins with cocktails. The cocktail menu isn't online and it's been a while, but they were all good and all at hh prices. I would recommend their Moscow Mule. That was definitely a group favorite!
Though this cocktail was prettier... I think a delicious combination of spicy and sweet. Look for mango and a pepper vodka perhaps?
Following a round, or two, of cocktails we picked some items off the happy hour menu.
Fondue ($6) served with apples, bread and green beans. I definitely liked the veggie dipper addition. I think this rotates based on what they have in the kitchen since the menu said it would be asparagus.
Katie and I were both there so obviously the Mac & Cheese ($4) was ordered. This wasn't just pasta and cheese, but also bacon, chicken and bread crumbs. I was definitely failing at a pre-wedding diet.
The Mushroom Pizza ($7) was probably my least favorite thing if I'm remembering correctly, but that could also just be because it was the most expensive item and I am feeling poor. Hard to say.
Jen kept us healthy by throwing in a Cobb Salad ($5) will all the fixings. It was a good compliment to our otherwise carb loaded and cheesy selections.
Final addition was Sweet Potato Chips since they were only $2. I wouldn't say they are a must, they're more of a why not? I would order them again.
I really enjoyed the happy hour and the pricing was reasonable, especially compared to Jo Bar and Papa Haydn's dinner menus. Adam and I actually stopped into Jo Bar for a late late lunch one day and I would definitely not go back for the regular menu, since the hh is a great deal. When I go back, if I go back, I'll be hitting up hh for sure!
