Furlough Happy Hour

Happy hour

Editorial Review

With many government agencies now furloughing workers on Fridays, Duffy’s Irish Pub is holding Furlough Happy Hours on Thursday nights through Labor Day. From 4 to 7 p.m., the Shaw bar offers $1 pints of Sam Adams Boston Lager, Sam Adams Summer Ale, PBR, Tecate and Miller Lite, plus half-off its entire menu. (That’s a dozen Chesapeake wings for $6.50.)

While Duffy’s is launching this happy hour to mark the beginning of the Department of Defense furloughs, you don’t need to work for the government to take advantage of the specials.
