The US Navy is our reason for Happy Hour

Before we go into our menu, we thought we’d share the history of Happy Hour. The term has been around for centuries and can be found as far back as William Shakespeare’s play King Henry the V. Our modern version of Happy Hour though dates to the U.S. Navy. Yup, you read that right! You can thank the sailors for it. Back in 1913, a social group called the Happy Hour Social, organized ‘semi-weekly smokers’ aboard the USS Arkansas. As what normally happens, the ideas got combined and the sailors began calling it simply ‘Happy Hour’. By the end of World War 1, the idea of having a ‘Happy Hour’ spread throughout the entire Navy.
