Old Town Happy Hour – 5th and Wine
Unless you have been living under a rock you know we love Old Town and personally we think it has the best places for Happy Hour in town (Ok we admit, we might be a little biased here)! So we are always up for showing off our town and what better way to do it then by promoting Happy Hour every Thursday at 5pm. You can check Facebook and Twitter to find out where we will be next time. Here are the results of our recommendations; we will of course be updating this weekly so stay tuned! See the lengths we are willing to go for you to bring you these updates! I swear it’s a tough job!
5th and Wine
Thursday, May 3
Week three of our quest to find the Best Happy Hour spots in Old Town and boy did we stumble upon a great spot. 5th and Wine was perfect last night, the patio was amazing (covered in bright awnings and ample misters it can be enjoyed long into the summer). If you have checked out our blog post on the best patios in Old Town, you know why we love it here.
Jack Young, a favorite of the locals, plays on the patio almost every Thursday and provides great music at a volume you can have a decent conversation with. And isn’t that why we love Happy Hour? To catch up with good friends!
But enough with the social stuff lets get to the real reason we love 5th and Wine and recommend it to anyone that asks, the appetizers and wine specials for Happy Hour are some of the best in town. Let’s start off with the fact that every glass of wine on the wine list, that’s right every glass, is just $5 during Happy Hour from 3 – 6 pm. Now it’s sad that as soon as I walk in they all start pouring me a glass of the Marietta but that’s not because I’m predictable right? The wine list has something for everyone and is one of the best in town. Don’t take our word for it though, feel free to check it out for yourself!
Did someone mention appetizers? Yep, 5th has you covered there too. Ever tried Fried Pickles? Love them! But I have to admit it took some convincing to win us over… thanks Scott! The fried pickles are thinly cut, fried to perfection and served with a creamy horseradish sauce for dipping.
But what 5th and Wine is really known for at Happy Hour is their Bruchetta. They have 6 types to try but may we recommend this selection of our favorites: Apple and Brie; Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella; and the Steak and Horseradish. It’s a great threesome! As someone mentioned last night, the bread is not too hard, very flavorful and toasted just right.
If you want some fun finger food, try the Prosciutto Wrapped Breadsticks. These are as fun to eat as they look, the prosciutto is thin and delicious and the breadsticks come with a sauce for dipping.
As usual, your expert Schmooze Crew finished every crumb. Did I mention these are trained professionals?
