Happy Hour Bailout!? Eagle Rock/Eastside

Hello all! My husband and I are both laid off, and besides clipping coupons and staying in all the time, we've decided to explore happy hours (hopefully with FREE food!). It might help us stay sane ... maybe? Between surfing and happy hour - we can all get through this mess!

Suggestions anyone?

Thank you!

  1. Not Eagle Rock, but close by in Pasadena Kabuki in Old Town looks to have some decent and reasonable happy hour selections. And I haven't been, but I've heard that McCormick & Schmick's Happy Hour has some great values - one being a $1.95 hamburger that I heard is not too shabby.

    OTOH, with York Blvd being a stone's throw away - you'll probably do great with most of the Mexican places there - Huarachas Azteca being one.

    1. You might do pretty well at some of the hotels downtown.

      1. Arnie Mortons downtown at Fig and 7th does steak sandwiches in the downstairs bar during happy hour.

        1. McCormick's and Schmicks has their 1.95 cheeseburgers at happy hour. It's a 1/2 lb burger with fries!

          Best deal in town IMO.

          1. Magnolia on Lake in Pasadena has 1/2 off of everything on the menu, IIRC, and good pricing on margaritas and wines for HH.
            On the first Thursdays of the month at Vertical, there is free wine tasting. A winery wants to push--I mean sell--their wines, so they come and offer free tastings. There's also a small HH menu.
