    You've come a long way from the trashy Happy Hours of your early twenties when advertised specials of discounted booze for two hours had you sucking 'em down as fast as you could order them (possibly even two at a time). Yeah, that's classy!

    To the more mature version of yourself, nothing quite says "Happy Hour" like the promise of ice cold martinis and oysters on the half-shell. There's something about the brine that goes so well with the gin… it's the stuff dreams are made of.

    Ansill Food + Wine in Queen Village brings the words "Happy Hour Special" to a whole new "grown-up" level on weeknights from 6-8. Instead of the usual greasy bar snacks and well drinks, Ansill offers $5 Finlandia martinis and $1 oysters. (When was the last time you had a dozen for less than $20?). For non-martini fans, there's also $5 glasses of prosecco and $3 Yards drafts. Now that's really classy!
